Signed autograph letter, signed « Winston S. Churchill », 105 Mount Street [London] 15 May 1905, to the journalist C.F. Moberley BELLl; 4 pages in-8 format, his address; in English.
A candid and confidential letter from Churchill, young member of Parliament to the Times journalist Moberley BELL.
«...As to the Orchid League of the future I will not venture to pronounce. ‘The vicissitudes of politics are inexhaustible.’ But people who quarrel with their own original party very rarely return and I am not ambitious to be distinguished in that respect...The possibilities of the general election are I think more hopeful than you allow. The Irish 82-is not now & will not be afterwards- necessarily a united 82. There are I think nearly 20 now who are independent of Mr. Redwood’s control. The Unionists who return to the H of C will include at least 12 who will be Chamberlain’s personal opponents...»
“I think with you that it is very possible that alterations may be made in the ministry during its early years. The great age of many of those who will be prominent in it, seems to render such alterations inevitable... “You may be sure that no Liberal ministry will hold offi ce for one unnecessary hour without a general election.”
