DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
After his tribute to Churchill.
Typed Letter Signed: "Dwight D. Eisenhower", 1p, 7x10¼. On his gilt "DDE" Gettysburg stationery but written from Palm Desert, California, 1965 February 11. To Jon Nielson, Whittier, California. In full: "Thank you for your gracious letter concerning my personal tribute to Sir Winston Churchill. I am pleased that you found it worthy of comment and were kind enough to let me know." Sir WINSTON CHURCHILL, British Prime Minister during World War II and during the first three years of Eisenhower's presidency, had died on January 24th. Eisenhower spoke at Churchill's funeral in London on January 30, 1965. In part: "At this moment, as our hearts stand at attention, we say our affectionate, though sad, goodbye to the leader to whom the entire body of free men owes so much. In the coming years, many in countless words will strive to interpret the motives, describe the accomplishments, and extol the virtues of Winston Churchill - soldier, statesman, and citizen that two great countries were proud to claim as their own. Among all the things so written or spoken, there will ring out through all the centuries one incontestable refrain: Here was a champion of freedom. May God grant that we - and the generations who will remember him - heed the lessons he taught us: in his deeds, in his words, in his life. May we carry on his work until no nation lies in captivity; no man is denied opportunity for fulfillment. And now, to you Sir Winston - my old friend - farewell!" Paper clip impression at upper left blank corner. Lightly creased, one just touching the "r". Fine condition.
