Autograph letter signed

Category: History

Chequers, No Publisher. c.1932.


Autograph letter signed on a Chequers headed card from Prime Minister Ramsey Macdonald to Sir John Foster Fraser. "Though I have to bar journalists from this heaven of rest, you sit on my table and you are a really welcome guest." "I wonder what the world would be like if we alll really knew each other." James Ramsay MacDonald (1866 – 1937) was the first Labour Party Prime Minister, leading a minority Labour governments for nine months in 1924 and again between 1929 and 1931. From 1931 to 1935, he headed a National Government dominated by the Conservative Party and supported by only a few Labour members. MacDonald was expelled from the Labour Party as a result. Sir John Foster Fraser (1868 –1936) was a Scottish travel author. In July 1896, he took a bicycle trip around the world covering over 19,000 miles in two years. Between books he was a journalist. During 1916 he lectured on 'What I Saw in Russia'. Fine.
