Moll, in full: "My wife and I are most interested to hear of the improvements you are carrying out at the West Essex Conservative Club. Thank you for writing to us. Unfortunately, owing to my accident, neither of us is accepting invitations for the autumn, but if you would later on let us know the date of the ceremony you contemplate, I would arrange for a member of my family to attend if you would like this. We hope that the alterations to the Club will give pleasure to all who use it." In fine condition, with central horizontal and vertical fold and a couple staple holes to top edge. Consignor notes that the letter is from the estate of Major Jack Churchill, Sir Winston's brother. Churchill's accident began a slow but steady decline in his health and a gradual withdrawal from public life until his death on January 24, 1965.
