John Hay:
Not having any, Mr. President?



Theodore Roosevelt:
Oh, no cake for me, John, birthday or no. Have to remain fit and trim, vigorous and active. After all, this Raisuli fellow is reputed to be over fifty and still a formidable brigand.



John Hay:
Well, you might well make a formidable brigand yourself. You've made a good start in life, and we all have high hopes for you - when you grow up! And now I shall have some of your cake. "Let them eat cake" - thank you!



Theodore Roosevelt:
Not good for you, John - neither are those cigars.



John Hay:
At my age, I can afford it.

Do you pray often?

I pray to Mecca five times a day.

Is that so? I wonder how you find time, when you are so busy cutting off men's heads and kidnapping women and children!

If I miss the morning prayer, I pray twice in the afternoon. Allah is very understanding!
