CHURCHILL, Sir Winston Spencer (1874-1965). Autograph letter signed ('Winston') to Pamela Plowden, 35a Great Cumberland Place, London, 20 June 1899, one page, 8vo . Provenance : Pamela, Countess of Lytton; and by descent. PROSPECTS FOR THE OLDHAM ELECTION. He is just back from Oldham: 'The whole thing is in my hands as far as the Tory Party there go. I fight the seat & am trying to find [a] second candidate' -- if Ivor Guest were in the country it would have been him. Churchill succeeded 'famously' with the committee: 'We very nearly arranged a compromise by which I should have been the Tory Member'; instead there will be a 'fight' with uncertain results. One of the two Conservative MPs for Oldham, Robert Ascroft, had died on 19 June; the other being chronically ill, the party chose to hold a double by-election, which was to take place on 6 July. At the age of 24, Churchill was fighting his first election.
