An illustrated letter that President Theodore Roosevelt wrote from Yellowstone National Park to his 6-year-old son is being sold in Philadelphia.

In the 1903 letter, Roosevelt tells his youngest son, Quentin, what life was like in Yellowstone. The note includes a sketch the president made of a mule carrying his gear.

An image of the note is available from the Associated Press.
