1903 political invitation for the 28-year-old Churchill

Partial DS, one page, 5 x 3.25, no date but circa September 1903. The concluding portion of a form for an event at “Sheffield, on Thursday, Oct. 1st, at 1 o’clock,” filled out and signed by Churchill to request that a ticket be sent to him, “Winston S. Churchill, 105 Mount Street, London.” Double-matted with a portrait of Churchill to an overall size of 12.75 x 18.5. In fine condition, with intersecting folds. Though undated, this is almost certainly for an event on October 1, 1903, as Churchill only lived at this Mount Street address from 1900 to 1905, and 1903 was the only year during this period that October 1 fell on a Thursday; this date also coincides with the Conservative National Union Conference at Sheffield, which Churchill attended. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
