President Warren G. Harding: Possibly the Last Letter He Wrote From the White House
Considering Harding’s past, this letter is appropriately parochial and, considering his future, strangely prophetic: concerning, apparently, a proposed memorial to be erected near the local cemetery.
It is also, in all probability, the last letter Warren Harding wrote from the White House. He would die, on the road, six weeks later, and be buried in Marion, Ohio, at the local cemetery.
Typed Letter Signed, as President, 1 page, quarto, The White House, Washington, June 20, 1923. To George H. Van Fleet in Marion, Ohio. With White House transmittal envelope.
