Warren G. Harding Typed Letter Signed as President

This lot has closed

Estimate: $200+


TLS as president, one page, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, May 15, 1923. Letter to Henry R. Schaffner, general business manager of The Marion Star, in full: "I wish you would send to me a copy of the annual statement which was gotten out for our company at the close of the last fiscal year, December 31st. I hope everything is going along swimmingly at the office. If you will be good enough to remember me cordially to your associates I will be glad." In fine condition, with a couple of small spots. Harding bought the Ohio daily newspaper The Marion Daily Star in 1884, and held ownership of the paper until mid-1923—the White House announced President Harding's sale of The Star on June 20, 1923, just over a month after he sent the present letter.
