Autograph Letter Signed from Joss Egerton to Major R. O. Skeggs M.C. congratulating him and saying “I merely was asked what I thought about your abilities as an Instructor, your brain matter & your experience in factory work and I could only tell the truth, that of all the many Instructors I had during the war you were my mother’s darling etc, etc, at any rate I got a very charming reply from the University college wizard, & I thought at the time the man would be a B.F. if he disregarded my advice! Their Royal Highnesses are here but apart from them only my old friends Glamis & his dear sister Lady Rose & when not shooting I am busily employed in manual labour tearing ivy off a house & HRH keeps me at it, I never saw such a worker myself... I suggested we might have 5 minutes to rest & smoke, not a bit of it, he wouldn’t stop hacking & pulling until it was all off. A d-d good fellow and most humorous. She of course always was a dear...”, 2 sides 8vo., with original autograph envelope, Glamis Castle headed paper, 4th October

HANKEY (Sir Maurice Pascal Alers, 1877-1963, from 1939 1st Baron)

Typed Letter Signed ‘Hankey’ to J. Lloyd Humberstone saying he has read his “letter in the last issue of the ‘Sunday Times’ about the Kiel Canal zone. It is going to rather a difficult matter for those responsible for the peace settlement. It is not much good giving the responsibility to Denmark, which is a very weak country and not a very easy one to support under modern conditions. I even doubt if the Danes would accept it. On the other hand it is also not an easy position for any of the United Nations to occupy permanently. On the whole I am disposed to think that present and future air developments will make its neutralisation easier and its importance less in time of war. Many thanks also for the pamphlet on the public school question. I read the first half this morning with great enjoyment... In revenge I send you my Haldane Memorial Lecture... I am afraid that it does not deal with the question of the Army. You will find that set forth very fully in Lord Haldane’s own book ‘Before the War’...”, with a brief autograph note from the recipient signed with initials, saying that he had sent Hankey the Kiel Canal papers, 1 side A4, Privy Council Office, Whitehall, 29th July
