|Jennie Jerome Churchill to Moreton Frewen, September 5, 1898
After the Battle of Omdurman, Churchill's mother, Jennie Jerome Churchill, telegraphed her sister Clara and brother-in-law, Moreton Frewen. Jennie told them that her son was safe and that his regiment had performed well. She added, however, that a newspaper correspondent, Hubert Howard of the London Times, had been killed and that another Times reporter, Francis Rhodes, had been wounded.
