Correspondence on Iraq, 1922

By Winston S. Churchill and David Lloyd George

Reprinted by kind permission from the official biography, Winston S. Churchill, Companion Volume IV, Part 3, starting at page 1975. “Wee Free” may refer to the Asquith Liberals, who were “free” of the Lloyd George Coalition. An August 1920 letter along the same lines (“There is something very sinister to my mind in this Mesopotamian entanglement”) was written but not sent; see Companion Volume IV, Part 2 (Heinemann, 1977), 1199. In 1921 Churchill became Colonial Secretary and went to Cairo to settle Middle East boundaries.
