Winston Churchill to Jack Churchill, November 15, 1895

Well worth rereading in the present day. Two pull quotes:

But essence of American journalism is vulgarity divested of truth.
A great, crude, strong, young people are the Americans – like a boisterous healthy boy among enervated but well bred ladies and gentlemen. Some day Jack when you are older you must come out here and I think you will feel as I feel–and think as I think today.

Picture to yourself the American people as a great lusty youth – who treads on all your sensibilities – perpetrates every possible horror of ill manners – whom neither age nor just tradition inspire with reverence–but who moves about his affairs with a good hearted freshness which may well be the envy of older nations of the earth.

Thank you, young Winston!

GO PersianKiwi GO!
