23. Churchill, Winston S. Typed letter signed ("Winston S. Churchill"), 1 page (7.5 x 9.5 in.; 190 x 229 mm.), on "28, Hyde Park Gate, London" letterhead stationery, 22 January 1950. Written to Andre de Staercke, a contributing editor to his war memoirs, regarding the upcoming release of the third volume. With a handwritten opening and closing. Original binder hole at the upper left corner and some minor stains at the edges. Churchill writes in part: My dear Andre, Thank you so much for your letter of December 31, I am certainly inserting a passage at once in Volume III to cover the important point you mention...Pray convey my thanks to His Royal Highness for his kind message. My thoughts are so often with him in these very strained and difficult times for him and for Belgium...I have had to curtail my stay in Madeira in view of the General Election here. Polling Day has been fixed for February 25 and so you can imagine we shall be much occupied for the coming weeks...Winston S. Churchill. At the time this letter was written, Belgium was gearing up for a national referendum on the question of whether to allow King Leopold III to return from exile in Switzerland. Churchill himself faced an important national election, in which he won (though his party did not), remaining Leader of the Opposition. In 1951, he was again elected Prime Minister. $1,000 - $2,000
