TLS as president, one page, 7 x 8.75, White House letterhead, June 19, 1923. Letter to Henry R. Schaffner, general business manager of The Marion Star, in full: "I am returning herewith my Will which you will retain in your possession so long as you are connected with the Star, and hand same to your Uncle, Charles D. Schaffner, in case of my death. In the event that you are leaving Marion or severing your connection with the Star I will be glad to have you notify me so that I may give you new instructions regarding its safe-keeping." In fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, bearing a red wax seal on the reverse impressed with the presidential seal. Harding bought the Ohio daily newspaper The Marion Daily Star in 1884, and held ownership of the paper until mid-1923—the White House announced President Harding's sale of The Star on the next day, June 20, 1923. Harding soon fell ill, and passed away six weeks later on August 2, 1923.
