Scope and Contents

Copy of a letter from WSC to "S.B." [Stanley Baldwin] on various subjects including: thanks for Baldwin's comments on the proofs of WSC's memoirs [The World Crisis]; hope that the book will do well; his concerns about India and the support he has received for his views in response to his speeches; and a plea that Baldwin will not allow his friendship with Lord Irwin [earlier Edward Wood, later Lord Halifax] to affect his judgement or the action of the Conservative Party on the issue. WSC states "I must confess myself to care more about this business than anything else in public life" and concludes by inviting him [to Chartwell] because "When the sun shines I would rather be here than anywhere in the world." Carbon typescript.
