Scope and Contents

Letter from Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur Harris (Headquarters, Bomber Command, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire) to WSC describing a recent visit to the Chateau de l'Horizon (Cannes [France]). He refers to the condition of the house and garden, and states that the "Boche" occupied it but took nothing except WSC's painting of the swimming pool and the volumes of Marlborough which WSC had given to Maxine Elliot [Maxine Eliott]. "It all looked somewhat sad. The local French are terribly hungry.".
