Churchill writes as Chancellor of the Exchequer to Daily Express editor Ralph D. Blumenfeld, with an additional holograph salutation and closing. Upon ''Treasury Chambers / Whitehall'' stationery dated 11 August 1927, Churchill writes: ''My dear Blumenfeld, I am very sorry but I am afraid that I must decline your very attractive invitation to be the principal guest of the London district of the Institute of Journalists. I have already taken on an unpleasantly large number of public engagements in October and the last week of that month I shall be spending in my constituency - addressing two meetings a night...[signed] Winston S. Churchill''. Single page measures 7.5'' x 9.5''. Folds and stain at upper left, otherwise near fine.
