Typed Letter Signed ("F. Foch")


5" x 8". On the stationary of Claridge's Hotel in London. One modest fold from mailing, a little foxing, dry mounted on card with a portrait of Foch, the letter is easily removable and near fine. A brief letter responding appreciatively to sentiments expressed in his correspondent's previous letter, written less than a month after he accepted the Armistice that ended WWI. In full: "Londres, le 3 december 1918. Madame, tres sensible aux sentiments que vous avez bien voulu m'exprimer, je vous demande de trouver ici la sincere expressions de m'as vifs remerciements. F. Foch." Marshal Foch was largely responsible for the strategy that resulted in the victory on the Marne, and at War's end was Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Armies.
