Theodore Roosevelt slept on the table

Peter R. Bacon


The 1977 - 1978 volume of the Journal contained a short article which left several unanswered questions. Entitled Theodore Roosevelt's Visit to Oropuche Cave, the article exhibited a photograph showing the one-time president of the United States of America standing in the mouth of the cave on Leotaud's estate, Cumaca. With Roosevelt in this 1911 snapshot were two unidentified persons, one of whom it was thought might be "a Mr. Carr". It was surmised that this trio travelled to Valencia "by train" and thence "over the hills by horse, mule or by walking". Further information has now come to light, which I am pleased to present in this note.
