|Clementine Churchill to W. Averell Harriman, June 30, 1942
Wartime shortages and commodities rationing in Great Britain were occasionally alleviated by friendly Americans. In this note from Clementine Churchill to Averell Harriman, she thanks him for handkerchiefs and other gifts: "I was running short' & one hates to spare precious coupons on handkerchiefs. . . . And the Ham! The glorious ham! Words fail me."
