“I can do quite a little better in the monthly magazines”
 
COOLIDGE, CALVIN. (1872-1933). Thirtieth president of the United States. TLS. ("Calvin Coolidge"). 1p. 4to. Northampton, March 26, 1932. On his imprinted stationery to the editor-in-chief of The Saturday Evening Post, GEORGE H. LORIMER (1867-1937).
 
I am very glad my article came out to your satisfaction. It is entirely agreeable to have it reprinted by anyone who wishes. I have not anything in mind that I could do for you at present time. I am very much pleased to have something I write in your publication but when I have an article that does not need to be hurried to the press, I can do quite a little better in the monthly magazines, partly because they get a larger advantage than you do from an increased sale.
 
Under Lorimer, The Saturday Evening Post became an immensely successful and influential magazine, known for featuring the work of leading contemporary writers and thinkers. Initially progressive, with Lorimer's drift to the right it later "became an active --if unofficial -- organ of the Republican party. Lorimer knew many presidents personally, and nearly every president during his editorship contributed to the Post" (DAB), including Coolidge. After leaving office in March 1929, Coolidge remained deeply interested in current affairs, and briefly wrote a syndicated column (the only president to do so), Thinking Things Over with Calvin Coolidge, which appeared in nearly two hundred newspapers. Boldly signed and fine.
