The Opinion of
Theodore Roosevelt
Regarding the Exploration and Discovery of the North Pole

From a letter to his sister, Anna Roosevelt Cowles, while on safari, October 17th, 1909
 .....Give my love to blessed Sheffield. I am always interested to hear what Will is doing.
                                                                                       Your Loving Brother.
P.S. That Peary reached the Pole I am sure; whether or not Cook did I can't say, for Cook though a capable man, is a fake.
