In full: "Just a line to thank you cordially for your letter of the 14th instant. I hope you will be on this side of the water before my term is out."

Roosevelt had assumed the presidency two weeks earlier upon the assassination of President McKinley and the nation was still in mourning, thus the uncommon black-bordered stationery.
