J., and sent to the President by the latter and made public last night. In this letter of young Calvin’s he refused to consider himself “the first boy of the land’’ and declared that such a title should go only to “some boy who had dis tinguished himself through his own action.” The letter in full follows: NORTHAMPTON, Mass- August 16. 1923. James Harold Mac Art, East Orange, N. J. Dear Friend: I thank you very much for your kind letter. Vos, I remember Paul Reynolds well. Remember me to him if you will. I believe “Paul’’ was his name. I think you are mistaken in calling me the first boy of the land, since I have done nothing. It is my father who is President. Rather the first boy of the land would be some boy who had dis tinguished himself through his own actions. Wishing you good luck, I am. Sincerely yours, CALVIN COOLIDGE, Jr. Pershing to Eeview Parade. BOSTON. August 7.—Acceptance by Gen. Pershing of an invitation to review the parade of the G. A.
