January 6, 1919 Monday

Theodore Roosevelt died quietly of a hemorrhage blood clot on brain at home Sagamore Hill. Greatest & most original American since Lincoln Taft.

Up about 2 pm on account of cold. Getting bad. Did some shelving work in house & practiced on steel guitar. Easy to play with a little practice. How I dislike being sick. Feels like my blooming head would break- Wilson is making a hit in England France & Italy in the interests of peace speeches & receptions for him galore. No peace conference yet.
