Scope and Contents

Letter from Mary [Lady Soames, earlier Mary Churchill] ((Hamsell Manor, Eridge Green, Near Tunbridge Wells [Kent]) to "Papa" [WSC] thanking him for a cheque "the fruit of your thoughts and labours" and for his love; for making solid arrangements for his children and grandchildren ("it is truly a 'house' whose strong walls have been built - every brick- by your genius and unceasing toil"); and for her family's home. She ends "I wish I could express more adequately my love and gratitude - but please believe me, they are real and deep; and in addition to all the feelings a daughter has for a loving, generous father, I owe you what every Englishman, woman & child does - Liberty itself". Signed manuscript.
