“I know very well about the cougar in a wild state”
Description  

TLS as president, two pages on two adjoining sheets, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, July 27, 1905. Letter to Ellen Velvin. In part: “I have read your piece on the puma in ‘Wild Creatures Afield.’ But my dear Miss Velvin, in writing it I am sure you have been misled by reading Hudson’s really absurd fables—fables which it is incomprehensible to me that any trained, scientific man would have written. What are your own personal experiences, or those that Mr. Bostock told you about, of cougars in captivity? These I regard as of great importance; but Mr. Hudson’s stories are fit for a modern Aesop, though they are very charming reading. I know very well about the cougar in a wild state.” In fine condition, with light soiling and faint feathering to ink. One of Roosevelt’s famed hunting exploits came in Colorado in 1901, when, helped by his hunting dogs, he killed a cougar with a knife. Wonderful content revealing Roosevelt’s passion for big game. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
