What president gave the speech of 8445 words?

William Henry Harrison, the 9th President of the United States, whose Inaugural Address speech was edited by Daniel Webster in February 1841, holds the record for the longest Inaugural Address speech at 8445 words. Even though there was a snowstorm on William Henry Harrison's inauguration day (March 4, 1841), Harrison refused to move his ceremony indoors. Wanting to prove that he was still a hardy general who could brave the elements, Harrison took the oath of office as well as delivered the longest inaugural address in history (8,445 words, which took him nearly two hours to read) outside. Harrison also wore no overcoat, scarf, or hat. Shortly after his inauguration, William Henry Harrison came down with a cold, which quickly transformed into pneumonia. On April 4, 1841, having only served 31 days in office, President William Henry Harrison died. He was the first President to die in office and still holds the record for serving the shortest term.
