Chapter 9, The Honorable Gentleman from the Twenty-First Summary and Analysis

Roosevelt returns to Albany for this third term as assemblyman. He campaigns hard to become speaker of the house, but loses. However, he succeeds in pushing three pieces of legislations through, including a reform of New York City's aldermen. As he begins an investigation into political corruption in New York City, Alice nears her due date for their first child.

On Feb 13, Roosevelt receives a telegram announcing the arrival of a daughter. Later the same day, he receives another message, employing him to return home, for Alice and Mittie both lie near death. Shortly after Roosevelt arrives, both die. In sympathy, the state house calls for an adjournment. Roosevelt mentions Alice very few times through the rest of his life.
