Churchill, Winston S
Winston S. Churchill Typed Letter Signed.
1951. Rare typed letter signed by Winston S. Churchill as Prime Minster of the United Kingdom. One page on Churchill's 10 Downing Street letter head with the seal of the British Prime Minister, the leader reads: 12th November, 1951 His Excellency Dr. Myo-Mook Lee. My dear Minister, I write to thank you for your letter of October 27, in which you sent me a message from His Excellency the Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea. I should be grateful if you would thank Mr. Chang for his good wishes and assure him that I too look forward to friendly co-operation between our two Governments in our common resistance to the forces of aggression. Please accept also my warm thanks for your own congratulations. Believe me, Yours very sincerely "Winston S. Churchill." Written less than six months after the start of the Korean War on June 25th 1950, this significant letter illustrates Churchill's resolute commitment to the containment of the Communist threat. When the North Korean military first invaded South Korea, it was Churchill who stood in the House of Commons to deliver the Conservative Party's support to the government to deploy troops to the Korean peninsula and fight what he viewed as unprovoked aggression on the part of the North. In fine condition. Double matted and framed with a bas relief portrait plaque by Wedgewood of Churchill in profile with a cigar. The entire piece measures 21 inches by 12.5 inches.
