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

53. BILL THE LIZARD
 
White House, June 21, 1904.    

BLESSED ARCHIKINS:
  The other day when Mother and I were walking down the steps of the big south porch we saw a movement among the honeysuckles and there was Bill the lizard—your lizard that you brought home from Mount Vernon. We have seen him several times since and he is evidently entirely at home here. The White House seems big and empty without any of you children puttering around it, and I think the ushers miss you very much. I play tennis in the late afternoons unless I go to ride with Mother.
