The Opinion of
Regarding the Exploration and Discovery of the North Pole
From a letter to his sister, Anna Roosevelt Cowles, while
on safari, October 17th, 1909
.....Give my love to blessed Sheffield. I am always
interested to hear what Will is doing.
Your Loving Brother.
P.S. That Peary reached the Pole I am sure; whether or
not Cook did I can't say, for Cook though a capable man, is a fake.
