TLS signed “Yours sincerely, Winston S. Churchill,” one page, 7 x 9, Chartwell, Westerham, Kent letterhead, March 3, 1949. Letter to his barrister Leslie Graham-Dixon, in full: "The news I have received from Moir vindicates the soundness of the advice you have given me, upon which I have acted. Thank you very much indeed for all your help." Churchill adds the salutation in his own hand. Double-matted and framed with a portrait to an overall size of 17.5 x 13.75. In fine condition, with scattered tiny stains.

At the age of 74, and not long after his first tenure as Prime Minister, Churchill began to more seriously look into the future care and financial comforts of his family. To this end he employed his barrister Leslie Graham-Dixon and his solicitor Anthony Moir to advise him on the establishment of a trust most suitable to create an income for his descendants, free from the burden of taxation.
