No Place Like Sagamore Hill

(To Ethel, at Sagamore Hill)

White House, June 11, 1906.

I am very glad that what changes have been made in the house are good, and I look forward so eagerly to seeing them. After all, fond as I am of the White House and much though I have appreciated these years in it, there isn’t any place in the world like home—like Sagamore Hill, where things are our own, with our own associations, and where it is real country.
