Thatcher, Margaret (1925 – 2013)
A good typed letter signed by Margaret Thatcher, on 10 Downing Street headed paper, 15th November 1984. She writes to Jane Parsons, thanking her for her letter, and going on, ‘It was good of you to write and I so much appreciated it. It has been a particularly difficult and sad period. But friends like you have been a tremendous support and comfort.’ Thatcher refers here to the Brighton bombing that had taken place a little over a month earlier. Some scuffing and staining to the very bottom of the letter, otherwise in fine condition.
