TLS signed “Winston S. Churchill,” one page, 7.5 x 9.5, Hyde Park Gate letterhead, March 29, 1956. Letter to editor and publisher Desmond Flower, in full: "I am afraid I shall not be able to conform to the request in your letter of March 25. I have always considered June 1 as the date I should deliver Volume II. This will give you five clear months before November, which is surely enough to bring out the book. I hope on re-examination you will find that this is so. I have made great progress in re-casting Volume III. The weather has been beastly." The letterhead has been amended to read: "at La Pausa, Roquebrune Cap Martin, A.M." In fine condition. Desmond Flower (1907-1997) was the longtime editor and director at London's Cassell & Co., a publishing house that released numerous collected speeches by Churchill, in addition to two of his most enduring works: the six-volume The Second World War, and the four-volume A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, with the latter undoubtedly the very subject of this letter.
