Long Island, N.Y.
August 15th '91

My dear Dick,

I am more
than pleased at the
news. I know of no
man who more
deserves a good wife
than you, and of
no one better fitted
to make a girl happy.

I congratulate you
with all my heart;
do give my warmest
regards to Miss Brookes,
and tell her how
anxious I am to
meet her.
By the way, I have
another little daughter.

With warmest
well wishes
Cordially yours
Theodore Roosevelt
