THOMAS W. LAMONT
Banker Thomas William Lamont signed this typed letter in 1923, saying that future Nobel Peace Prize recipient Lord Robert Cecil couldn't meet with the recipient. Lamont added that he was happy to accept an invitation to be a toastmaster.
Typed letter signed "T W Lamont". Pencil notations near bottom edge in unknown hand. Black ink marks in unknown hand near top right corner. 1 page, 8½x11. April 20, 1923. Addressed to J. George Frederick, Esq., Society of Arts and Sciences, New York City. In full: "My dear Mr. Frederick: In reply to your cordial letter of April 18th, I hasten to explain that Lord Robert Cecil is sailing at the end of next week and, as I happen to know, every evening of his brief stay is filled up already two or three deep with engagements. In fact he does not get to New York form the West until Monday night, and he has to spend two days in Boston; so that he will be here only Monday. Tuesday and Friday nights, which as I say, are all filled. I know that Lord Robert will regret that he cannot meet you and your associates, and I am more than grateful to you for desiring to honor me with the toastmastership on the occasion which you had in mind. With regret again, Sincerely yours". This is possibly a reference to LORD ROBERT CECIL (1864-1958), who helped draft the League of Nations Covenant in 1919 and was later President of the League of Nations Union (1923-1945). Cecil was awarded the 1937 Nobel Peace Prize for promoting the League of Nations and working with peace movements. WILLIAM THOMAS LAMONT (1870-1948), who entered banking in New York City in 1903, became a partner in J.P. Morgan & Co. in 1911. During the 1920s and 1930s, he traveled to a number of countries to help transact loans and advise foreign nations on financial matters. When J.P. Morgan & Co. was reorganized in 1943, Lamont became the Chairman of the Board of the firm. Lightly toned and soiled. Staple holes in top left corner. Folded in half horizontally and twice vertically and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
