This letter from Theodore Roosevelt is a response to Martha Berry pertaining to her Christian industrial school for boys. The letterhead indicates that Roosevelt was still in the office of President at the White House in Washington D.C. when it was composed. William Taft is mentioned at the end of the letter, likely because he had been elected president with the overwhelming support from Roosevelt. Roosevelt mentions visiting Berry's school upon return from Africa, to which he embarked in March of 1909 when his presidential term ended.
