Did John Stevens ever reveal his reasons for resigning as chief engineer of the Panama canal project?

It seems to be a mystery but there is a link that states: It was after Roosevelt had returned to the U.S. that Stevens began to dislike working at the canal. In a letter to the President, he did not resign, but stated that he was not 'anxious to continue in service.' Try this link http://www.june29.com/Tyler/nonfiction/pan2.html
