    Theodore Roosevelt Autograph Letter Signed. Two integral pages, 4.5" x 7", "Sagamore Hill [New York]," June 12, 1911, regarding the education of his son. He writes, in full:

    "I am very sorry to learn about Mr. Bower's trouble; I hate to have to write about Archie in connection with it, but of course this is the last and most important week for him, and he ought not to forfeit any chances. He should, for this week, have one tutor all the time, for each subject; will you arrange this?"

    Young Archie was a mischievous young man (he had been expelled from the prestigious Episcopal prep school Groton) and attended several schools in his teen years. Water damage throughout the middle and down the edges has caused the ink to fade and bleed slightly, including the signature, which is still bold.
