Christmas greetings to a Boston monsignor

Uncommon ALS as president, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 6 x 7.25, December 27, 1923. Letter to Monsignor J. P. E. O’Connell in Boston offering Christmas greetings. In part: “Curiously Mrs. Coolidge and I were speaking of you at Christmas and wondering where you were. I was glad to get your letter and she will be too. Our boys are at home now and Mr. & Mrs. Stearns are with us. When you come to Washington you must let us know in advance so we can have you to break bread with us. I am so pleased to know that your Father and Mother are well. A letter just came from my father saying he is well. He will be 79 next March. With all the greetings of the season to you and your people.” In fine condition. Autograph letters by Coolidge are uncommon, with this example featuring warm personal content from the typically reserved leader.

Ex. Sotheby’s, October 31, 1985; sale 5379, lot 64. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
