#141 - Edith Roosevelt Estimate: $200+

ALS as first lady signed “Edith Kermit Roosevelt,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.5 x 7, Sagamore Hill letterhead, June 30, 1903. Letter to Mildred McLean Dewey, the wife of Admiral George Dewey, in full: "The pictures have come and I am so glad to have them, and I shall look at them many times this summer with very friendly thoughts. We are so happy to be all here together after so many months. Little Ethel, about whom you and the Admiral are so kind, took charge in a thoroughly capable and womanly way of the younger children and the house while I lingered with her Father in Washington. Thank you many times for the pictures, and with the President’s most friendly messages." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. President Roosevelt had just returned from a three-month, coast-to-coast tour of the country that lasted from April to June 1903. Edith had not joined him on the trip, but met him in Washington upon his return. While in Washington, their 11-year old daughter, Ethel, was tasked with watching her two younger siblings, Archibald and Quentin, at their Oyster Bay, N.Y. home. In July 1903 the entire family was finally able to vacation together at Oyster Bay.
