Winston Churchill Autographed Handwritten Letter
Dated 7th January 1904: a handwritten letter from Winston Churchill's home at 105, Mount Street, London.
Churchill wishes his correspondent success at a meeting and continues:
"Lord Beachaump seems to be making a strong confederation of Free Traders & Progressives in the Midlands. From all I hear Mr. Chamberlain will encounter one or two electoral surprises in his dominians when the day of battle comes."
The letter is signed of with a superb Churchill signature.
Just a day after writing the letter the Oldham Conservative Association passed a resolution stating "that this meeting intimates to Mr Winston S Churchill, MP, that he has forfeited their confidence in him as member for Oldham, and in the event of an election taking place he must no longer rely on the Conservative organisation being used on his behalf"
Following his deselection in the seat of Oldham, Churchill was invited to stand for Manchester North West.
He won the seat at the 1906 general election with a majority of 1,214 and represented the seat for two years, until 1908.
He became Prime Minister on 10 May 1940.
The letter has a couple of very minor tears and some ageing, however it contains interesting content written at a pivotal moment in his young political career.
