CHURCHILL, Winston (1871-1947). American novelist, politician and painter.
Autograph Letter Signed to Mr Burton, 1 page 4to (some splitting in the folds), The Plaza Hotel, New York, 8 December 1908. Explaining that he and Mrs Churchill were on the brink of going to Europe ('or California'), and adding that he had a candidate to put up against ?Gallinger ('he will not beat him, of course, but we shall hear some truths').
The American novelist was an occasional correspondent of his more famous British namesake. It was the latter who agreed to use to initial 'S' (from Spencer) in his signature to prevent any confusion between them (their lives having been to some extent similar), and the novelist concurred in the arrangment with the proviso that if he too had had a middle initial he would have used it.
