Note26 EA H 100 Paid Govt 1:20 P - Executive Office, Oyster Bay, N.Y. 24 - Mrs Grover Cleveland, Princeton, N.J. - Your telegram shocked me greatly. Mrs. Roosevelt joins in very deep and sincere sympathy. I have of course abandoned my intention of starting to-day for the New London boat races so that if the funeral is either Thursday or Friday I can attend. I can also attend if it is Sunday, but if it is Saturday a number of men are coming here from various parts of the country on a business engagement which I cannot well break will you direct some one to wire me when the funeral is to be and where. - Theodore Roosevelt.
