Lot 208: TLS signed "Winston S. Churchill," two pages, 7.5 x 9.5, Prime Minister letterhead, November 27, 1951. Letter to Mrs. Cowper, in part: "I have been preoccupied with national problems since becoming Prime Minister so that it is only just recently that I have been able to consider my personal affairs, and how they affect all the people who have been working for me over the past years…I am afraid, that we shall all have to face certain changes. I have decided that I would like Miss Marston to remain at No. 27 and deal with certain matters on my behalf. I propose that she shall take over the responsibilities which you have undertaken so well for me in connection with my constituency…I know how efficiently and happily you have looked after my affairs and interests in my constituency over the past years, and I wish you to know how much Mrs. Churchill and I have valued your services and your loyalty." In fine condition, with central horizontal and vertical folds and a punch hole to top left corner of both pages.
