Self Portrait, 1911, charcoal sketch

“I stood in the polling booth without an idea of which way to swing the election. In my uncertainty I said a Lord’s Prayer, wondering if there was unconscious irony in the act, and cast my vote for Coolidge!  The faces of Davis and Bryan both are repugnant to me.  Lafollette, I thought, should not fool with the Supreme Court, and although I cannot say much for Coolidge’s face, I felt that being an Eastern man he was probably the lesser of three evils.”  (Tuesday, November 3, 1924)
