Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919).  Theodore Roosevelt’s Letters to His Children.  1919.

101. GENERAL KUROKI
 
White House, May 12, 1907.    

DEAR KERMIT:...
  General Kuroki and his suite are here and dined with us at a formal dinner last evening. Everything that he says has to be translated, but nevertheless I had a really interesting talk with him, because I am pretty well acquainted with his campaigns. He impressed me much, as indeed all Japanese military and naval officers do. They are a formidable outfit. I want to try to keep on the best possible terms with Japan and never do her any wrong; but I want still more to see our navy maintained at the highest point of efficiency, for it is the real keeper of the peace.
