A friend sent me that beautiful prose poem of Rol>«rt Ingersoll s when
I was expecting you. It has always hung near my bed. 1 am sure you re
member the first paragraph:
"Born of love and hope, of ecstacy and pain, of tears and joy—dowered
with wealth of two united hearts—hsld in happy arms with lips upon life’*

it made me very proud on the night of your marriage when you said
you were more blessed than- most girls because I had imparted to you a full
knowledge of all the great secrets of nature In a way that had made you
understand the sacredness and beauty of married life.
Now when you find that the very crown of womanhood has been plac

glad to know that there is nothing but jov in your heart.
When this is so there Is no room for that silly self-conaclousness.
vhich often goes bv the name of modesty. There is nothing vulgar about
the birth of a child. The woman who realizes the greatness of Natures plan

Yes my dear little girl, for you are still mother s little girl, although

I am just telling vou today of my happiness in the fact that your life

Until tomorrow, rest in the love of MOTHER.
ACTIVE IN BOY SCOUTS
NEW YORK, Jan 22 Colonel
Theodore Roosevelt who. for two
years has been honorary vice-presi
dent of the Boy Scouts of America is
now a more active worker in the or
ganization. He has become Chief
Scout Citizen and, in doing so, has
assumed direction of those activities
in the scout movement pertaining es
pecially to the training of the boys
in citizenship and social service. Just
as Ernest Thompson Seton lias charge
of ihe activities pertaining to wood
craft and Gifford Pinchot, Chief Scout
Woodsman, has charge of those ac
tivities- pertaining to the development
of trees and other natural resources
of the country, so the former presi
dent of the United States in his force
ful way will supervise that part of
the boy scout program of recreation
and education designed to train boys
of the country in national and local
affairs pertaining to government and
thus to fit them for the sturdy out
door life for which he stands.
Both Colonel Roosevelt and Mr.
Pinchot appreciate the tremendous
possibilities in developing useful cit
izenship through the Scout movement
and mean to give it the benefit of

their hearty support. The officers of
the Boy Scout movement are very
much encouraged by the progress,
which has been made in the last few
weeks in securing the consent of Col
onel Roosevelt and Mr. Pinchot to
serve on the Chief Scout's staff.
Colonel Roosevelt and James E.
West. Chief Scout Executive have
been very Intimately associated in
othe Important work. As secretary
of the National Child Rescue League
Mr. West persuaded Colonel Roose
velt to call the White House Confer
ence on the (’are of Dependent Chil
dren. which attracted world-wide at*
tenUon and resulted la a platform
for children's work which will be fol
lowed for years to come. All of the
details Incident to this important con
ference were worked out by Mr. West
in conference with Colonel Roosevelt.
It is reported that Colonel Roosevelt
is willing to take up the work partly
because of his confidence in Mr. West
to whom he once wrote: “You are one
of those disinterested and patriotic
citizens to whom this country is un
der a peculiar debt of gratitude."
