CHURCHILL, Winston S. Autograph manuscript fragment signed ('Winston Spencer Churchill'), n.p., [1 January 1900], the conclusion of a dispatch for the Morning Post , 13 lines on one leaf, 142 x 168mm , irregularly cut at upper margin, printer's markings in blue crayon, laid onto a page from an album. Provenance : Sotheby's New York, 26 June 1998, lot 354. LOOKING BACK ON HIS BRIEF CAPTIVITY IN A BOER PRISONER OF WAR CAMP. 'Two days before I had written to an officer in high command at home ... "There has been a great deal too much surrendering in this war and I hope people who do so will not be encouraged". Fate had intervened, yet though her tone was full of irony she seemed to say as I think Ruskin once said "It matters very little whether your judgments of people are true or untrue, and very much whether they are kind or unkind"'. The next day, Churchill was given a commission as lieutenant in the South African Light Horse, whilst being permitted to continue his activities as a war correspondent: 'This was most remarkable: it was largely because of his activities as an officer-correspondent in the Omdurman campaign that a rule had been established that the two jobs could not be doubled' (Churchill, II, p. 507).
