Churchill, Randolph Henry Spencer, Lord, 1849-1895
Letters written in response to Guedalla's invitation to attend a dinner given for Lord Randolph Churchill on the eve of his departure for South Africa at the Amphitryon Club on 18 March 1891. Among the replies are those from J. Chamberlain and Asquith. Some of the letters are formal acceptances of the invitation; others more personal in content. Lord Randolph's trip to South Africa resulted in his book Men, mines and animals in South Africa. While there he wrote to Winston, at that time at Harrow, "Here I have been examining gold mines & investing money in what I hope will be fortunate undertakings ...".
Accompanied by a typed letter signed from Martin Johnson to Donald Stillman, managing editor of the periodical, on personal stationery from Nairobi, British East Africa, 12 May 1930: "Now that my series of stories is finished in 'Forest & Stream' I wish to thank you for the excellent way you handled them ... I have received more letters of appreciation from these articles than from any other publication." These photographs comprise those submitted to the magazine "Forest & Stream.".
