Churchill thanks a German official for his assistance after visiting their Labour Exchange
Description  

LS signed “Winston S. Churchill,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 5 x 8, Board of Trade letterhead, September 24. Letter as president of the Board of Trade, labeled at the top “Private” by Churchill, who also handwrites the greeting, to Alexander Dominicus, in full: “I am much obliged to you for your very kind letter and for the papers which you have been so good as to send me about the Strassburg Labour Exchange. I am having the latter translated and I feel sure that the information contained in them will be of considerable use. Your offer to come over here and give us the benefit of your experience is a most generous one and I shall bear it in mind. Meantime let me thank you most warmly for the kindly way in which you received me at Strassburg and for all the assistance which you gave me.” In fine condition, with some light show-through of ink on reverse of first page. Accompanied by a two-page TLS from Arthur Henderson to Dominicus. In September of 1909, Churchill traveled to Germany both to observe the maneuvers of the German army and to visit the well-established labor exchanges. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
