His new job, Vice President Coolidge tells the politically powerful Archbishop of Boston, isn’t of any great responsibility, but engaging all the same. He sits, sometimes, presiding in the Senate fourteen hours a day; he writes endless speeches; he has, he says, little time for himself. And now, with the great ceremonial entombment of World War I’s Unknown Solider about to take place in three days, he has even less. Still, he hopes that the Cardinal never visits Washington without seeing him – and gives, in that connection, careful directions of how to find him and Mrs. Coolidge at their suite in the Willard Hotel.
Autograph Letter Signed, as Vice President, 3 pages, recto and verso, quarto, Vice President’s Chamber, Washington, November 8, 1921. To William Henry O’Connell, Cardinal Archbishop of Boston.
