A get well letter to Emma Allison sharing information on a new Roosevelt family dog: "I am so sorry to learn that you have been sick, and I am so pleased that you are getting on well now. I hope you will soon be out of bed and just as bright as ever. Since I have come back to the White House we have gotten a new little dog for the White House called Scamp. He is a black-and-tan and very merry. We hope he will take the place of a very dear little dog called Skip which belonged to Archie and which died last summer. Your father's friend, Theodore Roosevelt."
