As promised, today a few more clippings from the wonderful overstuffed scrapbook of Alice Roosevelt Longworth, irrepressible oldest daughter of President Theodore Roosevelt -- a fantastic find at the Manuscript Room of the Library of Congress.  
Last time, we showed you news photos that Alice saved from the 1904 surprise announcement of her wedding engagement to "suave" "debonair" Congressman Longworth (R.-Ohio).  Today, we have a mix of clips, some from just after the wedding, others from Alice's life later on.  
Hope you enjoy them.  There's more to come.

Alice in the 1930s with her only child, daughter Paulina.  Born in 1925, Paulina's father was understood to be not Nick Longworth, Alice's husband, but rather Senator William Borah (R-Idoha), with whom Alice had an affair.  Sadly, Paulina suffered from a chilly relationship with her mother complicated by what doctors back then called "melancholy," and died of a pill overdose in 1957 at 31 years old.   Her husband, Alexander Sturm, had died of hepatitis in 1951.

This is my personal favorite:  Alice wrote a memoir in 1933 called CROWDED HOURS, published by Scribner.s,  and, like any good writer, she tracked her sales and royalties like a hawk.  Here's one of her statements.
