Dear Sir:-

[ocr errors]

Replying to your letter Docember 21st in which you request some expression from me concerning my impressions of n Theodore Roosevelt the Christian" Permit me to say that I am convinced that Theodore Roosevelt had a devout belief in God and though a consistent churchman he never paraded his belief, but it was evident in his writings, in his speeches and in his conduct. His clean personal life is the best proof of his faith and belief.

That he was a close student of the Bible was bat natural since he was ever & seeker after Truth. Unquestionably he believed in prayer, not only as a means of grace, but as a personal help and consolation.
