#4076 - Warren G. Harding Typed Letter Signed Estimate: $600+

"The Memorial will be one more sanctuary for Americans ever anxious to honor their countrymen who made the great sacrifice for civilization and national freedom"

TLS as president, one page, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, May 15, 1923. Letter to Myron T. Herrick, US ambassador to France. In full: "I have learned with much pleasure, through your letter, of the plans for dedicating on Memorial Day the Memorial Battle Cloister, in the Church of the Holy Trinity, in memory of the Americans who well in the World War. Provided through the generous thoughtfulness of both American and European donors, the Memorial will be one more sanctuary for Americans ever anxious to honor their countrymen who made the great sacrifice for civilization and national freedom. It will be, beyond this, another among the many sacred places on Europe's soil, where Americans may resort to invite those sentiments of brotherhood, unity and common dependence which so greatly need to be encouraged among all the peoples whose fortunate estate makes them in some wise guardians of humanity's highest aims. That it may become such a shrine, and that as such it may inspire a constantly close intimacy and firmer friendship among our own nation and the peoples of Europe, is my earnest hope." In fine condition, with old mounting tape along the back edge of the blank integral leaf.
