Letter handwritten in ink by T. Roosevelt from then British East Africa, Lake Naivasha, to brother-in-law Douglas Robinson.

Roosevelt writes Robinson of expenses incurred by the naturalists from the Smithsonian, Edgar A. Mearns, John Alden Loring, and Edmund Heller, working on the Smithsonian African Expedition of 1909-1910. Roosevelt notes the staff were "in sore straits for funds. I have advanced them money; I am exceedingly anxious that they shall continue, for they are doing remarkable scientific work ... The big expense of the expedition is nine-tenths due to the scientific work; enormous quantities of salt ... the transport of huge hides and skeletons ... traps and supplies ... etc."
