Autograph Letter Signed ‘yours ever, Anthony’, to “My dear Max” [Max Beaverbrook], thanking him for what he writes about politics, and discussing the news from Saudi Arabia. 3 pp. 7 x 5 inches, in fine condition. Donnington Grove, 25 March 1958. Sir Anthony Eden (1897-1977), Prime Minister (1955-57). “The Saudi news has come sharp & soon – even earlier than I had expected when we talked. Now pressure will develop against, and maybe within, Oman & Aden. Nasser will seek to re-assure the Americans & to drive us and our friends from authority in the Arabian peninsula. I hope we shall not be lulled, still less make concessions at Buraini [Oman] or elsewhere, though we are likely to be pressed to do so.”
