White House Card

Quick Reference

      Background

      The genial Harding inscribes a White House Card with a cordial sentiment - “Good wishes!” – just two months into his Administration. This happy benediction may have been bestowed in connection with his receiving on May 12th, at the White House, the Duke of Acosta, the Government Reorganizing Committee, and the Chairman of the [Cotton] Exporters and Southern Bankers – or not. In any case, Harding’s troubles were all in the future, unimagined, and he was full of good cheer.
       
      Harding is uncommon in signed White House Cards.
