TLS as president, one page, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, December 18, 1922. Letter to Henry R. Schaffner, general business manager of The Marion Star, in full: "Please issue extra salary checks to Val Fleet, Woods and yourself for the usual monthly payment on Saturday next as a Christmas bonus, by my order. I believe I have the authority to determine salaries, and I choose to direct these three additional checks before the year is closed. This letter will be your authority for so doing." Endorsed over Harding's signature in pencil by a Marion Star office worker. In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. Harding bought the Ohio daily newspaper The Marion Daily Star in 1884, and held ownership of the paper until mid-1923. This interesting letter reveals Harding's involvement in the newspaper's business matters even during his time in the White House.
