Place Published: New York
Date Published: 4414

One page typed letter, signed, on Roosevelt's "The Outlook" stationery, with numerous holograph corrections. 9½x7¾".

Reads, in full: "My dear Mr. Wheelwright: I have long been acquainted, through Dr. J. Collins Warren, with what is being done in raising funds for the Infants Hospital. It is earnestly to be hoped that the building can be finished, for it will be one of the most important of the group of hospitals surrounding the Medical School, under Dr. Rotch, it is already being made a kind of observation hospital, devoted to the first two years of infant life, and is doing most practical work. It seems to me that your new magazine "Infancy" is designed to fulfill a thoroly admirable purpose, and one which should have the hearty support of fathers and mothers everywhere. I extend you my hearty wishes for your success. Faithfully yours, Theodore Roosevelt."


Creased several times horizontally, split at center crease with old tape repair on the reverse, lightly soiled; very good.
