TitleLetter from Anthony Eden to Michael Teague
Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter, dated 8 August, written from Fyfield Manor, Pewsey, in which he apologises for typing 'but pressure is heavy with the book just now and health has been troublesome'. He says he and his wife have changed their travel plans and are now going to confine themselves to a few days in Portugal and to a visit to 'your lagoon' which seems to offer the best prospects for purchasing a piece of land. He writes that he is sending Teague separately a copy of "Full Circle"[the second volume of The Eden Memoirs]. In a handwritten notes at the end of the letter, he adds that the book is 'by accident' a first edition which he hopes Teague will not mind even though there were a few corrections in the second edition. He merely signs this letter 'A'.

Eden presented and inscribed copies of all three volumes of his memoirs to Teague and these inscribed copies are available in the printed book collections of the Special Collections Department at rDA566.9.E28: Volume 1, Facing the Dictators (containing the inscription 'Inscribed for Michael Teague by his friend Avon May 17th 1963'); Volume 2, Full Circle (inscribed 'Michael In friendship and with gratitude from Avon July 1963 and in which this letter was found loose); and Volume 3, The Reckoning (inscribed 'Michael from Anthony Alvediston Oct 16th 1967')
