    This is an eight-page letter written in pencil by Theodore Roosevelt from “North of Mount Kenia” to Henry Cabot Lodge on 10 September 1909. The letter is from one of the Massachusetts Historical Society’s most interesting collections of presidential papers--personal letters from President Theodore Roosevelt to Senator Henry Cabot Lodge. Their correspondence extends over a much longer period than Roosevelt’s seven-and-one-half-year presidency. From 1884 until just before Roosevelt’s death in 1919, the two friends and their spouses exchanged hundreds of letters, notes, telegrams, annotated copies of speeches, newspaper articles, and photographs.
