A note from Winston Churchill.

I am and have been for a while an admirer of Winston Churchill, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Accordingly a couple years ago my wife gave me a signed letter from Churchill from December 1958 while he was a Member of Parliament. The elegance and simplicity of his language is a marvel to behold.

The letter says:

"I send greetings and good wishes to all my constituents in the Woolford Division. May you and your families enjoy a happy Christmas and in the New Year the prosperity and peace for which we are all working. [signed]"
