The Tar Baby and the Tomahawk: Race and Ethnic Images in American Children's Literature, 1880-1939

Dear Uncle Remus:

Many thanks for the very welcome New Year's gift of the two books. I shall read them at once, of course, and with the interest and enjoyment that anything of yours gives me.

You don't know how glad I was to have you here at dinner the other evening.

Give my regards to your son and Mr. Marquis, and wishing you a happy new year, believe me,

Faithfully yours, Theodore Roosevelt
