A. J. Sylvester and Lloyd George,

Letter, 7 January 1981, from A. J. Sylvester, Corsham, Wiltshire, to Miss Ann Parry. Describes his many afflictions, including cataract. Would like to write a book based on his experiences and his time with Sir Maurice Hankey and Lloyd George. Writer played a key part in the research for Lloyd George's War Memoirs during the 1930's. Much resents that Countess Lloyd-George chose Malcolm Thompson to write the official biography of Lloyd George and double-crossed Sylvester in so doing. Has a very high regard for Jennifer Longford today - 'She is a wonderful woman now, ... She is worth ten times that of Frances'. Frances left no more than £11,000 when she died in 1972 although she was the widow of Lloyd George. He refused to support her plan to establish an agricultural college in north Wales, and the setting up of the Lloyd George Museum at Llanystumdwy was due mainly to the efforts of the recipient. His health and the court case in which he is presently involved.

Sylvester, A J Albert James 1889-1989.
