From Theodore Roosevelt’s Letters to His Children:

12. PRESIDENTIAL NURSE FOR GUINEA PIGS
(To Mrs. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward)

White House, Oct. 20, 1902.

At this moment, my small daughter being out, I am acting as nurse to two wee guinea pigs, which she feels would not be safe save in the room with me—and if I can prevent it I do not intend to have wanton suffering inflicted on any creature.

Please enjoy this weekend while picturing Teddy Roosevelt clutching two guinea pigs to his chest and whispering “Bully” soothingly to them.
