CC to Ed Hall 1928

Mentioned on our blog in the recent past, this is a facsimile of Coolidge’s inscription to Ed Hall of Dartmouth College, Hanover, written and signed in a copy of Coolidge’s early speeches, “Have Faith in Massachusetts.” Composed after both men had lost sons, and as Mr. Hall was establishing the library of Dick’s House at Dartmouth (in honor of his late son), Coolidge says:

To Edward K. Hall,

In recollection of his son and my son who have the privilege by the grace of God to be boys through all eternity.

Calvin Coolidge
