CHURCHILL, Sir Winston Spencer (1874-1965). Autograph letter signed ('Winston') to Pamela, Countess of Lytton, La Capponcina [at Cap d'Ail near Monaco], 9 August [1958], 2½ pages, 8vo ; envelope. Provenance : Pamela, Countess of Lytton; and by descent. 'How precious memories are!'. Churchill is spurred to write by the death of a friend, and by a letter from Pamela, whose 'handwriting gladdened my heart ... My dear how precious memories are! I seem rejuvenated to read what you have sent me'. His time is spent in dawdling and he has not yet painted: 'Does the Riviera attract you at all? If so, let me know'. Churchill was a frequent visitor in the late 1950s to 'La Capponcina', Lord Beaverbrook's villa.
