JP Morgan’s twitter handle is awesome at #ThrowbackThursday — they always tweet out historical artifacts from the bank’s history.
Today it’s a 1925 letter from Winston Churchill to the bank, asking for a line of credit for England. The print’s tiny, but it reads:
I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter of today’s date stating the terms on which you are prepared to arrange a Revolving Credit of $US100,000,000 for two years from the commencing date as mentioned therein.
I accept the proposal as set forth in that letter subject to the passing of the required legislation by Parliament before which the necessary Bill is being laid forth.
