Typed letter signed "Kermit Roosevelt". 1 page, 7x10½, on stationery addressed from 11 Broadway, New York. Mounted to a 13¾x11 sheet of paper with black ink notations in unknown hand. Sept. 12, 1929. Addressed to Mr. Frank A. Eaton, New York City. In full: "Dear Mr. Eaton: When I gave you the pictures I remem-ber telling you about giving the credit to Suy-dam Cutting but I don't think I spoke to you about it again so I am writing this in case it has slip-ped your memory. I think the best way to handle it is just to make the annotation 'Illustrated from photographs by Suydam Cutting and Kermit Roose-velt'. Sincerely yours,". FRANK A.
