head of every chapter are by Mr Dooley, Theodore Roosevelt s favorite social commentator.The Shadow of the CrownI see that Tiddy, Prisidint Tiddy here s his health is th youngest prisidint we ve iver had, an some iv th pa apers ar re wondherin whether he s old enough f r th raysponsibilities iv th office.On the morning after McKinley s interment, Friday, 20 September 1901, a stocky figure in a frock coat sprang up the front steps of the White House A policeman, recognizing the new President of the United States, jerked to attention, but Roosevelt, trailed by Commander Cowles, was already on his way into the vestibule Nodding at a pair of attaches, he hurried into the elevator and rose to the second floor His rapid footsteps sought out the executive office over the East Room Within seconds of arrival he was leaning back in McKinley s chair, dictating letters to William Loeb He looked as if he had sat there for years It was, a veteran observer marveled, quite the strangest introduction of a Chief Magistrate in our national history.As the President worked, squads of cleaners, painters, and varnishers hastened to refurbish the private apartments down the hall He sent word that he and Mrs Roosevelt would occupy the sunny riverview suite on the south corner Not for them the northern exposure favored by their predecessors, with its cold white light and panorama of countless chimney pots.A pall of death and invalidism hung over the fusty building Roosevelt decided to remain at his brother in law s house until after the weekend It was as if he wanted the White House to ventilate itself of the sad fragrance of the nineteenth century Edith and the children would breeze in soon enough, bringing what he called the Oyster Bay atmosphere.At eleven o clock he held his first Cabinet meeting There was a moment of strangeness when he took his place at the head of McKinley s table Ghostly responsibility sat on his shoulders A very heavy weight, James Wilson mused, for anyone so young as he is.But the President was not looking for sympathy I need your advice and counsel, he said He also needed their resignations, but for legal reasons only Every man must accept reappointment I cannot accept a declination.This assertion of authority went unchallenged Relaxing, Roosevelt asked for briefings on every department of the Administration His officers complied in order of seniority He interrupted them often with questions, and they were astonished by the rapidity with which he embraced and sorted information His curiosity and apparent lack of guile charmed them.The President s hunger for intelligence did not diminish as the day wore on He demanded naval construction statistics and tariff reciprocity guidelines and a timetable for the independence of Cuba, and got two visiting Senators to tell him than they wanted to about the inner workings of Congress In the late afternoon, he summoned the heads of Washington s three press agencies.This being my first day in the White House as President of the United States, Roosevelt said ingratiatingly, I desired to have a little talk with you gentlemen who are responsible for the collection and dissemination of the news.A certain code of relations, he went on, should be established immediately He glanced at the Associated Press and Sun service representatives Mr Boynton and Mr Barry, whom I have known for many years and who have always possessed my confidence, shall continue to have it They must understand that this privilege depended on their discretion as to publication Unfortunately, he could not promise equal access to Mr Keen of the United Press, whom I have just met for the first time.Boynton and Barry jumped to their colleague s defense Roosevelt was persuaded to trust him, but warned again that he would bar any White House correspondent who betrayed him or misquoted him In serious cases, he might even bar an entire newspaper Barry said that was surely going too far Roosevelt s only reply was a mysterious smile All right, gentlemen, now we understand each other.Much later that evening, after a small dinner with friends in the Cowles house on N Street, the President allowed himself a moment or two of querulousness My great difficulty, my serious problem, will meet me when I leave the White House Supposing I have a second term .Commander Cowles, replete with roast beef, sank deep into leather cushions and folded his hands over his paunch He paid no attention to the cataract of talk pouring from the walnut chair opposite For years he had benignly suffered his brother in law s fireside oratory he was as deaf to Rooseveltian self praise as he was to these occasional moments of self doubt How like Theodore to worry about moving out of the White House before moving in The Commander s eyes drooped His breathing grew rhythmic he began to snore.I shall be young, in my early fifties, Roosevelt was saying On the shelf Retired Out of it Two other guests, William Allen White and Nicholas Murray Butler, listened sympathetically Prodigies themselves White, at thirty three, had a national reputation for political journalism, and Butler, at thirty nine, was about to become president of Columbia University they were both aware that they had reached the top of their fields, and could stay there for another forty years Roosevelt was sure of only three and a half Of course, the power given him dwarfed theirs, and he might win an extension of it in 1904 But that would make its final loss only harder to bear.So Butler and White allowed the President to continue lamenting his imminent retirement They interrupted only when he grew maudlin I don t want to be the old cannon loose on the deck in the storm Undisturbed by the clamor of younger voices, Commander Cowles slept on From the Hardcover edition.Praise for the rise of Theodore RooseveltMagnificent a sweeping narrative of the outward man and a shrewd examination of his character It
