More About this Item

Description: COOLIDGE, GRACE. (1879-1957). First Lady of the United States from 1923 to 1929. Free Frank. (“Grace Coolidge”). 1p. Oblong 8vo. Northampton, September 9, 1936. An envelope addressed to her neighbor, Northampton, Massachusetts REO car dealer Frank S. Parsons & Son, established in 1910. ********** When First Lady Florence Harding became ill in September, 1922, Grace, as wife of the vice president, began to assume many of Florence’s duties including organizing and hosting events at the White House. Coolidge ascended to the presidency upon the death of Warren Harding in August 1923, and Grace became a very popular first lady due to her vibrant and energetic personality which complemented her husband’s dour nature. In addition to her duties as a hostess, she was a devoted baseball fan (hailed as the “First Lady of Baseball”) and introduced a staggering number of pets to the White House, including Rebecca the raccoon, two lion cubs and the famous collie Rob Roy who was painted alongside the First Lady in a red dress in the famous portrait by Howard Chandler Christy. ********** Following the end of Coolidge’s presidency, the couple settled in Northampton, Massachusetts, where they lived a quiet life at their home, The Beeches. ********** Bearing two identical circular date stamp cancellations. Age toned with some creasing and wear. In very good condition.
