No Horsing Around For Harding’s Church Attendance


Warren Florence Harding

President Warren G. Harding enjoyed going horseback riding on Sunday mornings. At the insistence of First Lady Florence Harding, the president had to be back in time to go to church with her. It was up to his Secret Service agent, Col. Edmund Starling, to make sure the reluctant church-goer did not disappoint his wife.

One Sunday, as they rode along, the president said, “Colonel, let’s take that path.”

“If we do,” replied Starling, “we won’t be back in time to go to church.”

“I know it,” sighed Harding. “Your memory is too… good!”
