"We can all take pride in what has been achieved under Conservative leadership"—Churchill cites an improving economy and a tenuous world peace
TLS signed “Yours sincerely, Winston S. Churchill,” two pages, 7.5 x 9.5, 10 Downing Street letterhead, March 17, 1955. Letter to British Conservative politician John E. Harvey, in full: "It gives me great pleasure to send the Woodford Division Conservative Association my very warmest greetings at its Annual General Meeting, and I am sorry that my duties prevent me from being with you in person to express them.
As we look back over the three and a half years that have passed since the last election, we can all take pride in what has been achieved under Conservative leadership. On the firm basis of restored solvency we have achieved greater prosperity. Production has risen in our factories and on our farms, more people than ever before are at work and the nation is enjoying both a new freedom and rising standards of living. Abroad our tireless efforts to lessen tension have been rewarded with some success. We shall certainly persevere in working for peace in the world.
Let no Conservative, however feel that this is a time to relax effort. It will call for continued exertions on the part of all our members we are to keep the country moving forward along the right road." In fine condition, with a small file hole to the upper left corners.
