GLADSTONE (William Ewart, 1809-1898, Prime Minister)

Long Autograph letter signed to the Secretary of the Edinburgh, Perth & Dundee Railway Co., saying that “upon receiving a few days ago the circular and proxy relating to the arrangement contemplated between the EPD and the North British Companies, I, without much consideration but simply placing as usual my confidence in the Directors sent my proxy in their favour. I have since learned that there is a difference of opinion respecting the bearing of the plans on the ordinary shareholders and it seems that the prices of shares have fallen since it became public. Now though I am an ordinary shareholder my largest interest is in Preference Shares; and I am very reluctant to be mixed up in any matter of serious controversy on which I am imperfectly informed, and especially when it touches the respect interests of different classes. Under the circumstances and it being impossible for me to put myself in a position to obtain full information, I have to beg that my proxy may be considered as suspended and not put in use at the meeting ... I shall not in any case interfere against the Directors...”, 4 sides 8vo., Hawarden, 23rd September browned and frayed at the edges, repaired

GRENFELL (Joyce, 1910-1979, Comedy Actress)

Autograph Letter Signed to Miss Kit Stewart on an Air Letter form, saying that she hasn’t “written to say how touched & pleased I was by that lovely first night cable. I loved getting it... It was a wonderful 8 weeks. Smashing notices, audience’s warmth & kindness. Now for some TV and then home in the New Year. I don’t quite know when. It’s been a lovely experience & has made me understand & love America far more. I used to be faintly resentful in some ways even though I am ½v½. But there is such a sense of loving kindness & real neighbourliness & love here that I’m won over. We only see the tough materialistic touristy side - that exists too,, so does Smash Broadway, cigars, guns & toughness. But these are surface stuff like Edgware Road. The core is good...”, 1 side folio, with autograph address on the verso, Lamelton Hotel, West 55 St, New York City, postmarked 3rd December
