Churchill at Chartwell
"My dear Ivor, I have postponed my departure for India until next Friday. I shall hope to come to Paris a day earlier so as to have a talk with you. I hope you read the Morning Post of 25th and 27th instant. The speeches were successful but I hope to make considerable progress with practice. I speak at Portsmouth on Monday night and after that no more till next year. I will write to you and let you know my plans as to Paris. You must have witnessed some strange scenes in the last few days. A democracy gone wrong is a terrible spectacle. After all the only difference between us the other night was one which has long agitated the world. You follow Epicurus - I incline to Zeno. There is nobility in both. But I think more vitality in the second.
Ever yours sincerely,
Winston S. Churchill."
