William H. Taft: Typed Letter Signed. One page, 5.5" x 9", Washington, D.C.; January 3, 1908. Typed on War Department letterhead as Secretary of War and addressed to Supreme Court Justice, Hon. William H. Pope, thanking him for his Christmas greeting and cordial expressions, and signed "Wm. H. Taft." Includes the original mailing transmittal envelope.

William H. Taft (September 15, 1857 – March 8, 1930) was the 27th president of the United States (1909–1913) and the tenth chief justice of the United States (1921–1930), the only person to have held both offices. Taft was elected president in 1908, the chosen successor of Theodore Roosevelt, but was defeated for reelection in 1912 by Woodrow Wilson after Roosevelt split the Republican vote by running as a third-party candidate. In 1921, President Warren G. Harding appointed Taft to be chief justice, a position he held until a month before his death.
