"Guardian" Office, - February 26, 1914.
Little has been heard of Mr Theodore Roosevelt in recent months. r His disappearance from the limelight of public affairs was not altogether deplored by his countrymen, who yearned for quiet after the noise and bustle of his administration. Deep peace brooded over the White House when -the African jungle swallowed him up. Just now ho is exploring the wilds of South America, but there are- ominous signs that ho will break open his political coffin and resume tho furious life., Meanwhile, he has written an interesting biography. It is a very human document, although egotism is breathed into every page. He takes ,- the' world into his . confidnco in many personal matters: 'the details of his charming family life, the games of Ins children, . and his own passion for *port of all kinds, are subjects which . he discusses in a way that will appeal •to -almost everyone who reads his book. But-,there .is stamped indelibly on every page a ME, in black capitals/ an^'the world probably would be disappointed in its conception of him • werp it otherwise.-
