Autograph Note Signed: "With best wishes/for Paul Linebarger/from a friend of/his father/Wm H Taft/May 4th/1920", 3¾x2½ card. At the time he signed this card, TAFT was campaigning for fellow Ohioan Warren G. Harding for the presidential nomination.

Taft had served in the Philippines as Governor-General from 1901-1904, signing this card for six-year-old Paul. A college professor and Far East specialist, Linebarger was involved in propaganda techniques and psychological warfare in WWII. After the war he wrote science fiction under the pseudonym Cordwainer Smith. Lightly soiled. Fine condition.
