Lot 247: TLS, one page, 5.25 x 7, personal letterhead, February 18, 1956. Response to an admirer. In part: "Such letters of encouragement, especially as the kind of line that I am apt to take often brings me up against opposition from both Right and Left. I am in complete agreement with the opinions that you express in your letter. I once had the pleasure of meeting Masaryk, for whom I had a great admiration." Toned tape remnants to top and bottom edges, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a retained photocopy of the initial letter sent to Russell, a 1919 pamphlet entitled Democracy and Direct Action, and a 1970 pamphlet of Russell's message to the International Conference of Parliamentarians in Cairo.
