(7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches)
Item Number: 210571
Typed letter on Chartwell letterhead (7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches), dated October, 1959:
“I am most grateful to you for all you did in the recent Election Campaign. The successful outcomes is much due to the many voluntary Conservative workers who gave so much of their time to the Party. Please accept my warm thanks and congratulations on the result of your efforts.”
Signed: “Winston S. Churchill,” most likely by a secretary, though the signature could be printed. It is not in Churchill’s hand.
