Letter from Joseph Stalin to Winston Churchill inviting him to accept gifts on the day of his departure from Moscow

19 October 1944
Russian State Archive of Social and Political History

"Dear Mr. Churchill, on the day of your departure from Moscow, please accept these modest gifts as a souvenir of your visit to Moscow: a vase depicting a steersman on a longboat for Mrs. Churchill and a vase depicting a hunter with a bow fighting a bear for you.

I would like to take advantage of this opportunity to wish you once again health and high spirits."
