Daily News (5 august 1923, p. 4)

President Coolidge will be able to communicate with the spirit of President Harding within three days, provided Mr. Coolidge secures the proper medium. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, noted British spiritualist, declared yesterday, just before sailing for England on the Adriatic.

"It will take three days for Mr. Harding's spirit to become acclimated to conditions in the new world," Conan Doyle said.

"Mr. Coolidge should have no difficulty in communicating with his predecessor's spirit. Both men have led clean, Christian lives."
