Origin[edit | edit source]

William Henry Harrison was known for fighting at the Battle of Tippecanoe during the War of 1812. He ran for the presidential elections of 1836 and 1840, inaugurated the 9th president on March 8, 1841. He wore no hat or overcoat during his two hour inauguration speech on a cold, wet day. Not surprisingly, he contracted pneumonia and died April 4th that year. He was president for 32 days, making his term the shortest of any American president.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Anyone who reads from it becomes resolute and unyielding, but also acts frustratingly stubborn. After a period of approximately 32 hours, the user will begin to suffer from a very bad strain of the cold and experience pneumonia.
