Legendary United Kingdom Prime Minister WINSTON S. CHURCHILL hand-signed letter discussing the conservation "brown news sheets" printed in Mafeking during the Siege of the city between 1899 and 1900. Churchill had an active interest in preserving his nations history and these particular items would've caught his eye as he served in the Boer War and was a POW in South Africa during the siege. The letter is dated the 10th of September 1955, just 5 months after Churchill resigned the  office of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. 

Accompanied with the letter is an original note owned and reviewed by Churchill. The note was likely written by a secretary (DP) who passed the brown sheets along to Churchill for his review. Handwriting in pencil at the bottom of the note is in an unknown hand.

The siege of Mafeking took place from October 1899 - May of 1900. The siege lasted a remarkable 217 days and saw several notable British figures trapped in the besieged town. Some of the figures included the son of the then Prime Minister as well as Winston Churchill's aunt. The siege was ultimately relieved by British forces and served to boost the British morale of those back home.
