A pair of letters from President Roosevelt's son, Theodore "Ted" Roosevelt III (1887-1944), known as "Theodore Jr." Both are addressed to Rev. Philip S. Bird in Dobbs Ferry-on-Hudson, New York. In the first he declines an invitation to speak as he's already engaged, adding, "the members of the family at this moment are so scattered that it will be possible for no one to be there. My brother Archie is in Oklahoma, my brother Kermit and my mother in Brazil and my sister and her husband in South Carolina. The other members have not yet reached that stage in life where they can be counted on to make speeches, at least of a coherent nature...." In the second letter, he declines to Rev. Bird to make a commitment to speak on some other date.
