Dear Mr. Strauss,
How very kind of you to have sent me some more PUNCH Double Coronas. These are most agreeable cigars, and I hope you will accept my warm thanks for your friendly thought. Let me once more retaliate, as only an author can, by sending you another of my books, which I trust you may like to have.
Yours very truly,
Winston S. Churchill
