WARREN G. HARDING
The first President voted for by women would be pleased to appoint Miss Hoadley Postmaster, provided the District's Congressman agrees.
Typed Letter Signed: "Warren G. Harding" as 29th U.S. President, 1p, 7x9. The White House, Washington, 1922 March 20. To Miss May Hoadley, Tunkhannock, Pa. In full: "I am sending you herewith a letter which I have just received from Congressman McFadden [not present]. Apparently it will make very easy your appointment to the post office at Tunkhannock. I assume that the Congressman is correct about the date of expiration of the term of the present encumbent (sic). Unless there is some reason for a removal you can expect the present postmaster to serve out his term. I hope you will find opportunity at some suitable time to see Congressman McFadden and clinch the matter. It will be very pleasing to me to appoint you." Republican LOUIS T. McFADDEN represented Pennsylvania in Congress from 1915-1935. The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting the vote to women went into effect on August 18, 1920, so the election of 1920 was the first presidential election in which women voted. Appropriately, this letter concerns the appointment of a woman as Postmaster by the first U.S. President voted for by women. Fine condition.
