ALS signed "Winston S. Churchill," one page, 5 x 8, personal letterhead, November 12, no year. Letter to his cousin, Ivor Viscount Wimborne, in full: "Many thanks for both your letters. I shall be delighted to come to Canford on Tuesday and shall look forward to further discussions with you. I am afraid my insufficient knowledge of French prevents me grasping the full force of your doubtless conclusive quotation." In fine condition, with toning to the edges and some scattered light foxing. This letter's recipient, Churchill's cousin, was a British politician and one of the last Lords Lieutenant of Ireland, serving in that position at the time of the Easter Rising. He continued as Lord Lieutenant for another two years, and upon his retirement in 1918, was named Viscount Wimborne of Canford Magna in the County of Dorset. A fine association between Churchill and his bloodline.
