(1874 - 1965) British Prime Minister who led England through the Blitz and orchestrated the British liberation of occupied Europe and Germany. Churchill is today considered perhaps the greatest statesman of this century. T.L.S. "Winston S. Churchill" with holograph salutation and subscription, 1p. 4to., Chartwell, June 24, 1937 to Brig. Gen. JOHN H. MORGAN, (1876–1955) British general and lawyer with expertise in constitutional law and a delegate to the Paris Peace Conference. Churchill advises: "...I enclose the letter I have received from [Canadian Prime Minister] Mr. Mackenzie King, which seems to be all that can be expected at the present time. Would you please let me have it back when you have read it..." The letter is docketed near the bottom, presumably by Morgan, who notes that Churchill had written to King suggesting that Morgan be appointed Chairman of a commission to study "...working[?] of Federation in Canada..." Evenly toned from prior framing with a couple of ink splotches at margins, still quite good.
