    Description

    Winston Churchill Typed Letter Signed "Winston Churchill" as president of the Board of Trade. Two pages each 4" x 7.125" and dated June 11, 1908. Hand addressed to "Sir Edward Russell," editor of the Liverpool Daily Post. Churchill acknowledges receiving two letters from Russell and states: "The officials under the Port of London Bill will be appointed by Port Authority, but, as you say, the question of appointments will not arise just yet. When it does, I am afraid that the Board of Trade will have no say in the matter. I will bear in mind Mr. Chute's wish for appointment under this office, but I am afraid I do not know of any present opening."

    Churchill served briefly as President of the Board of Trade from April 12, 1908 through February 14, 1910. Smoothed folds through both sheets but they are otherwise in excellent condition. Matted with photo and framed to an overall size of 15" x 18".
