-  This is apparently an express letter from President-elect Harding to Edward B. McLean, chairman of the Inaugural Committee. It was probably sent about the same time as a similar message in a telegram of January 1921. Harding asks the Inaugural Committee to abandon all plans for an inaugural celebration because of his concern about extravagance, but sends his appreciation to McLean and the other members of the committee for their efforts. He describes his wishes, thus: "It will be most pleasing to me to be simply sworn in, speak briefly my plight of faith to the country and turn at once to the work which will be calling."
