Winston Churchill typed letter signed regarding corrections to his highly acclaimed memoir, ''The Second World War''. Churchill writes on his personal letterhead on 25 February 1956 to Commodore Gordon Allen, part of his ''Syndicate'' who helped him write the book series. Letter begins with Churchill's handwritten greeting, ''My dear Allen'', then continuing in part ''...I am much obliged to you for bringing this error to my notice. I have read the letter from the Italian officer and the British Admiralty account of the episode, and agree that the passage in question should read as follows, as you suggest: '... islands of Lampedusa and Linosa also capitulated to the British Navy. No enemy outpost now remained south of Sicily.' Would you be so good as to arrange for the correction to be passed to [publisher John] Cassells...[signed] Winston S. Churchill''. Letter measures 7.5'' x 9.5''. Filing hole and rust from paperclip at top left, otherwise near fine condition.
