        MacKenzie King typed signed letter (TSL ) marked "personal"

      1937. 1st Edition. No binding. Very Good. September 15, 1937, 8 x 6 1/4 inches, 4pp., Letter, is two (2) typed pages with MacKenzie's handwriting inserted, originally folded now flat, with 3/8 inch tear on top edge and 1/4 inch tear on bottom edge, otherwise very good condition. Typed signed letter (TSL) with MacKenzie King signature and mention of Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from May 1937 to May 1940 as well as WLMK's family roots connections.Dated September 15, 1937 on Laurier House, Ottawa letterhead where Mackenzie King resided as Prime Minister. Personal signed letter from Prime Minister Mackenzie King to Mary (Mrs. R.F. Scott) Toronto Ontario.Hand written salutation: My dear Mary:Typed body of letter: The last time I saw you was in the Gallery of the House of Commons on the day that Mr. Neville Chamberlain took his seat for the first time as Prime Minister. I was indeed sorry not to be able to have a word with you, either at that moment , or at any other in the course of our stay in London. My time , however, as you know was far from my own throughout the whole of that period .You may have seen that I visited Scotland before Going to the Continent and returning to Canada. While in Scotland, I visited the home in which my father ' s father , John King, was born. It is at Ladysford, near Tyrie , which is near Fraserburgh in Aberdeenshire . Mrs. Mary Scott, Toronto, Ont. A friend of MacKenzie's parents and whom he had ongoing personal correspondence with after this. WLKM had very few friends or family and rarely showed his private side in public which makes these type of personal communications insightful and rare. Highly collectable. This visit has caused me to gather together what information I can concerning my father's people. There was no one living, so far as I know who had the same knowledge of my father's father and mother as your own mother. I have always been under the impression that your father's people or your mother's people had been friends of my grandmother Macdougall through the Kings in Scotland .Among the records I have secured, there is one of an Alexander Thom who , in 1863, married a Jane King. As my father had a cousin named Jane , I am wondering whether this marriage might not, in some way have served to link our families . On the other hand, I run not at all sure that the Jane relationshipdid not come in from the Macdougall, rather than the King side, and it is quite possible thatyour mother s friendship my grandmother family was through the Macdougalls rather thanthrough the Kings.Do you by any chance recall anything Mrs . Thom may have told you concerning my father'sfather's people , or of my father ' s mother's people? Perhaps there is something your mother may havetold you that would be of interest, and would help me to trace further along the road of the past , thefamilies that have an immediate association. I shall not be surprised if you have no information or if I should find it difficult to secure much more than I already have. It is amazing how quickly the memories of those who have gone fade into oblivion.I hope you are keeping very well. With my kindest remembrances , Believe me , as always, MacKenzie King signature:Mrs. R. F. Scott, 5 Rosedale Road, Toronto, OntarioWilliam Lyon Mackenzie King, PC, OM, CMG (December 17, 1874 - July 22, 1950) was a Canadian lawyer, economist, university professor, consultant, civil servant, journalist, teacher, and politician.

        [Photo Album]: 1937 Touring Photo Album of Mexico and Central America

      Mexico and Central America. 1937. Octavo. Black leather spiral photo album measuring 9.5" x 7.5". An assortment of 147 sepia toned photographs measuring 3" x 5" and affixed to stiff black paper. Very good with curling on the boards, rubbing, and tiny tears. Most of the 147 photographs were taken during a trip through Mexico and Central America. Depicted are the sights of Latin America, palm trees, sombreros, mountains, a tented bizarre, and a hike through a rain forest. The tour participants can be seen in fedoras posing with locals and enjoying the atmosphere. One photo shows a group of local children hanging a large lizard upside down, which apparently was extremely hilarious based on their facial expressions, not so much for the reptile. Additionally, there are 21 non-trip related photos and postcards from places in Arkansas and North Carolina toward the rear of the album. An interesting accumulation of trip photographs documenting 1930s Latin America. .

Part II was written in Urbana, Illinois, where I was living in the house of a friend, whose English papers I corrected in exchange for room and board and five books a month -- an arrangement she thought up so I could go on writing and not starve to death. Part III I wrote there also, in ten days, walking the floor and brushing the tears out of my eyes so I would see the keys on the typewriter. W.M."

        Colonel W H F Weber , Royal Horse Artillery. An album with several signed portraits of General Officers who commanded in the First World War.

      1937 - An interesting album put together by Colonel William Hermann Frank Weber, C.M.G., D.S.O., Royal Horse Artillery who was a Staff Captain in Ireland with 6th Division in 1912 serving under acting Brigadier W H L Paget and had served in the South African War. He lived after the First War at Birkin House, Dorchester and seems to have had strong connections with the Williams family of Bridehead, Dorchester [see Burke's Peerage post 1920 or Landed Gentry before]. There are family pictures of him and his wife Benita and post war pictures of him as a leading figure in the local British Legion. In some of these he wears his medals whilst meeting the Prince of Wales at the Bath & West Show in 1928. Other pictures include war time views of France, musical and theatrical amateur pictures, family groups, hunting. The album is in very sound condition bound in original half blue leather gilt, portrait folio [11 x 15ins] with just a little rubbing and wear at the extremities. There are a few ephemeral inclusions, a signed letter from Gen Sir Reginald Pinney, a card to the Colonel, etc. The interesting and well annotated military portraits [in service dress unless otherwise described] include: Alfred Schuster, 4th Hussars [killed at Ypres Nov '14], 5 x 6ins seated 6 officers of J Battery, RHA winter 1925/6 [Fowler, MC, Cowan, Ralph Harrison MC, "Tom, in mourning for Wycliff" MC, Reggie Maitland, Barny de Robck MC] 11 x 7.5ins in tropical dress with pith helmets ex Cos of 2/Dorsets at Depot Garden Party 1927 [Lord Ellenbro', Caledon Egerton, Blosse-Lynch, "Pompey" Saunders, Radcliffe, all in civilian dress] 6 x 9.5ins The Shop Boxing Team.

Lawrence, Trotsky, and Hitler; "We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation and brought it back serene, helpful and strong, to the forefront of the European family circle."
