DescriptionWarren G. Harding Typed Letter Signed as President. One page, 7" x 9", Washington, August 12, 1921, on White House letterhead. Harding forwards a note (not included) from then Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover to Senator Smoot suggesting that he meet with the Secretary to discuss tariff measures. Slight rust mark from a paper clip and the usual mail fold, else very good.
Reed Smoot was Utah's longest serving senator with tenure of thirty years. A devout Mormon, Smoot served as an apostle, and was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. When he was first elected, a bitter 4 year battle ensued to determine whether Smoot would be allowed to serve because of his role as a Mormon apostle. Although the committee recommended that Smoot be removed from office, the Senate overruled the decision and Smoot was allowed to serve his term. After repeated re-elections, Smoot would continue to serve as Utah's Senator for 30 years. He would also continue to serve as an apostle of the LDS, and upon his death, he was third in the line of succession to lead the church.
