From Mrs M. Tanner

Sir: I have a letter that was written to me by Lady Churchill in 1943, thanking me and the children in my street for the sum of £2.10s.0d which we had raised in aid of her Russian fund. It is handwritten and signed by Lady Churchill herself.

As the Heritage Secretary is so generous with National Lottery money, I would gladly sell my historic letter to him for a meagre £15,000 and he can then add it to the other wartime documentation written by the Churchills.

Yours faithfully,


Middlesbrough, Cleveland
