TLS as president, one page, 7 x 9, White House letterhead, June 2, 1924. Letter to Edward Bok, editor of the Ladies Home Journal. In full: “I want to thank you not only for your generous word of approval of the policies which I have laid out, but for that deeper interest which impells [sic] you to do all in your power to see that they are carried out effectively. I can assure you that what you say is a real help and encouragement to me.” In fine condition, with a central horizontal fold and some mild toning to edges. On the same day this letter was written, Coolidge signed the Indian Citizenship Act, which granted full US citizenship to all Native Americans, while permitting them to retain tribal land and cultural rights.
