LUCY BALDWIN - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 05/07/1926 - DOCUMENT 53473

 
[STANLEY BALDWIN]; LUCY BALDWIN
Writing to Sir Robert Lynn from 10 Downing Street during the General Strike of 1926, she praises her husband's undaunted spirit.
Autograph Letter signed: "Lucy Baldwin", 1 page, 5¼x7. 10 Downing Street [Prime Minister's residence, London], 1926 May 7. To "Dear Sir Robert" [Lynn], in full: "Thank you so much for your most kind letter. It is most cheering to me to feel what affectionate & true friends he has. If anyone worked for Peace, he did, & as he has all his life, his spirit is undaunted, thank God! But I don't want another fortnight like the one we have just been through! I expect that you had a pretty bad journey from Belfast, but I hope that the sea was kind. Yours sincerely". LUCY BALDWIN (1869-1945) married Conservative Party politician Stanley Baldwin (1867-1947) in 1892. He would serve three terms as Prime Minister between 1923 and 1937, forced to deal with the abdication of King Edward VIII, the rearmament of Germany, and the General Strike of 1926, underway when this letter was written. Lucy Baldwin, politically canny herself, was involved in charitable causes, most notably a long-term effort to improve maternity care and reduce mortality during childbirth. Lady Baldwin became the Countess of Bewdlen in 1937. The recipient of this letter was Sir Robert Lynn, an Ulster Unionist Member of Parliament and hence a political ally of the Prime Minister. Normal mailing folds. Lightly toned at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
