2003 Sagamore Hill Postcard - Sept. 20

HH wrote the message and Jean addressed this 2003 Teddy Roosevelt related postcard.  Transcription follows. 

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, Oyster Bay NY Postcard [mailed 2003] Captioned: The North Room was added to the home in 1905 and was designed to be used for public receptions.  Roosevelt met here with foreign dignitaries and political leaders.  It quickly became a gathering place for the family and was used for parties, music, games, and quiet evenings at home.  NPS photo.

Just 2 of us on the tour here.  Quite a contrast to NYC.  The house cost 16M [$16,000] in 1885.  How times have changed.
The "E" [ElderHostel] program was very good & on to Hyde Park today.
Love, Mother & Dad
