A portrait of U.S. President Warren G. Harding

By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) – On Christmas Eve 1910, future U.S. President Warren Harding wrote his mistress Carrie Phillips a letter that began: “There are no words, at my command, sufficient to say the full extent of my love for you … mad, tender, devoted, ardent, eager, passion-wild.” Harding praises Phillips’ “matchless embrace” and adds: “To have and to hold you, in happiness to you, exclusively, in satisfying and satisfied love, would be the triumph of living and loving.” The message is among about 1,000 pages of sometimes steamy love letters between Harding and Phillips that the Library of Congress will put online on July 29 after a 50-year court seal expires. “In looking at this collection, it’s astonishing the amount of misinformation about him, in fact, about everybody connected with him,” the library’s Manuscript Division chief, James Hutson, told the audience, which included Harding relatives.
