EDITH K. ROOSEVELT. Signature: "Edith K. Roosevelt", 4x½, affixed to card of same size. Connecticut-born Edith Kermit Carow (1861-1948) grew up near the Roosevelts in Manhattan and was a constant companion of the Roosevelt children. She even attended kindergarten in their East 20th Street home. Throughout their childhood, Edith and Theodore often went hiking, swimming and rowing together. They quarreled while TR was in college and shortly thereafter, he met Alice Lee. When 19-year-old Alice and 22-year-old Theodore married in 1880, a heartbroken Edith attended the wedding. After Alice died in 1884, a chance meeting of Edith and Theodore in 1885 rekindled their friendship. They were married in 1886 and had five children. Theodore Roosevelt died on January 6, 1919. His widow was granted the franking privilege on October 27, 1919, on what would have been TR's 61st birthday. On February 25, 1919, by 40 Stat. L. 1530, Congress granted Mrs. Roosevelt an annual pension of $5,000. Portion of writing (unknown hand) above signature. Slightly soiled at upper margin, touching the "l" of Roosevelt. Overall, fine condition.
