WALLIS, DUCHESS OF WINDSOR. TLS: "Wallis Windsor", 1p, 5x8¼. Waldorf Astoria Towers, New York City, 1953 March, day obliterated. To "New York Post" columnist Leonard Lyons.In full: "Thank you very much for sending me a copy of your article for the New York Post of March 5th. As I always see your column, I had already read it with interest, but I appreciate your thought in sending it to me. As you know, the Duke is away at present, but we hope to see you sometime before we go back to Paris in the Spring." On December 10, 1936, KING EDWARD VIII (1894-1972), who had acceded to the throne upon the death of his father, King George V, on January 20, 1936, executed an Instrument of Abdication to marry the woman he loved, WALLIS WARFIELD SPENCER SIMPSON (1896-1986), an American divorcée. Edward, who was created Duke of Windsor by his brother, King George VI, on the day of his abdication, married Wallis just outside of Tours, France on June 3, 1937 in a small ceremony devoid of the royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, who settled in France, were married for 35 years and were popular in international high society. LEONARD LYONS was a syndicated columnist for the "New York Post". His well-known Broadway column was titled "The Lyon's Den". Creased. Damp stained at upper margin, touching 2 lines of type, stained at some typed words (all legible). Overall, fine condition.
