The letter reads: 'I am writing once more to thank you and the Staff of Hatchards for so handsomely completing your gift to me of the bound set of my War Memoirs. I shall always value these books as a token of your friendship and goodwill'.

One assumes the reference is to Churchill's six volume set of The Second World War, the last volume of which was published the previous year. Churchill was Prime Minister for the second time at this point (since October 1951) and remained so until 1955.

Lieut.-Col. Sir Thomas Moore (1886-1971), Conservative M.P. for Ayr from 1925 until his retirement in 1964.
