Letters Published By Roosevelt's
Biographer, Reveal The Colonel's
Intimate Knowledge Of All Literature
NEW TORK. Sept. IS. Delving into
the mine of ISO.MO letters which
Theodore Roosevelt wrote during hlf
public career, Joseph Bucklln Bishop,
the colonel's biographer, in the Octo
ber issue of Scribner's magazine,
brings to light a number of "gems in
the Intimate correspondence between
the former president of the United
Sta'es and Sir George Otto Trevelyan,
Bart, O. M.. English statesman and
author, with whom the great Ameri
can enjoyed a rare friendship covering
20 veara.
Mr. Bishop's paper, the second of
the series, entitled "Roosevelt and
Trevelyan." reveals the many sided
Roosevelt as "an insatiable reader of
books," his warm sympathy for
authors and his broad and profound
knowledge of ancient and modern lit
erature. Even amid the cares of the
presidency. Mr. Roosevelt, it is shown,
maintained a regular correspondence
with leaders of literary and intellec
tual life both in this country and
Europe. In Sir George Trevelyan,
nephew of the historian Macauley, he
found a man singularly responsive to
bis own intellectual tastes and icnowi-
I .de-e.
The correspondence began when
he was governor of New York and con
j tinued until a few months before Mr.
Roosevelt's death.
"Wished to Be Real president.
"I certainly would not be willine to
hold the presidency at the cost of
failing to do the things which makes
the real reason why I care to hold it
at all,", he w rote to Sir George on May
28, 1904. "I had much rather be a real
president for three years and a half
than a figurehead for seven years and
a half. 1 think I can truthfully say
that I now have to my credit a sum
of substantial achievement and the
rest must take care of itself."
Previously, in 1899. Trevelyan had
ent governor Roosevelt a copy of the
first part of his history, "The Ameri
can Revolution," which made a deep
Impression on its recipient and which I
he praised for "its interest, delightful '
humor, absolute falrmindedness and'
exactness of narrative." an opinion I
which was shared by senator Lodge ;
