Vice President Calvin Coolidge Explains His New Job is of Little Responsibility – But He’s Kept Busy All the Same
The Vice-President's Chamber,
My dear Msgr. O'Connell:-
I have been sitting sometimes fourteen hours a day in the Senate and I have had to write speeches in between so I had to rely on Mrs. Coolidge to answer your letter. I am sorry I did not see you when you were here, I hope you will never come here without seeing us. We can always be reached at the Willard. Our rooms are 328 - 3[missing]2, take the elevator at F. Street entrance and the doors are just at the right of the elevator, 3d floor. Any time except 12-30 to 2 you will find some one here.
Only the other day I saw the handsome menu which recalled your home. Please remember me to your people and your cousins.
I shall anticipate hearing your experiences in Europe. You have been exceedingly kind to us and I cannot tell you how much I have prized your kind interest.
My work here is not of great responsibility but terribly engaging. I have little time to myself. I hope once the revenue bill is out of the way for a little respite - but always butNov. 11 is coming and the Conference and such addresses as I have to make.
We hope to see you soon.
November 8 1921
