Letter from Sir Ian Hamilton (1 Hyde Park Gardens, [London]) to WSC explaining that he may omit some parts of his Gallipoli diary when it is published (but not his references to "the wickedness at the end which bust up the whole show") and praising WSC's painting of a cedar.
Telegram from John Colville [Prime Minister's Private Secretary] (Biarritz [France]) to Private Office passing on message from WSC to John S Churchill asking him to let him know how he is feeling and stating that he has been doing a little painting. Carbon copy. Annotated with John's reply.
Letter from WSC (23, Ring Strasse, Potsdam [Berlin, Germany]) to Brigadier-General Raymond Brutinel thanking him for his kindness and hospitality during WSC's stay at Bordaberry [Hendaye, France]: Stating that, "I think you know what it meant to me to have a quiet, restful holiday - my first since the War - in such charming surroundings" and referring to the fact that he was once again able "to enjoy the relaxation of painting" [carbon].

Letter from WSC to E Merrick Tylor [Managing Director of the Excess Insurance Company Limited], agreeing to let him have one of his paintings "as a memento of our transactions", hoping that he would keep it in his own house and not part with it "because I do not think very much of these daubs. I am shy of their undue exposure." [Carbon].
Letter from John Morley [Lord Morley] (Flowermead, Wimbledon Park, [London]) to WSC regretting that he is otherwise engaged on 26 May. Thinks that if ministers hang on for another session it may give WSC time to get his pictures off the easel.
Letter from Sir Abe Bailey (38 Bryanston Square [London]) to WSC, commenting on his painting, and asking him to write to 17th Lord Derby [earlier Lord Stanley] in order to "square things with him".
