LETTERS FROM T. R. TO KERMIT

Theodore Roosevelt's Letters to His Children was published in 1920 by Scribner. Here are 52 to Kermit Roosevelt from that collection, and 150 additional letters. Arranged chronologically, these cover six academic years, 1902-08, when Kermit was at Groton and T.R. in the White House. They show him in his most intimate and human guise, as affectionate and understanding father and husband, as adventurous and exuberant, worried about national and world affairs, and eternally youthful in spirit, with a gay, buoyant sense of humor. The introduction sketches in a short biography of Kermit; a brief resume fills in background for successive chapters. Abundance of Roosevelt lore in this collectors' item.
