CHUR 1/54/1 Letter from Dorothy, Lady Moran [earlier Dorothy Wilson] (129 Harley Street [London]) to WSC, on an argument between himself and his doctor, 1st Lord Moran [earlier Charles Wilson]. She explains that Moran told her he had lost his temper and said "some very foolish things", and considered that he had been entirely to blame, adding that it had been a terrible experience for both Moran and herself as they were devoted to WSC. Lady Moran writes that Moran could not sleep and was breaking his heart because he felt that WSC might no longer respect him, but dared not come to apologize because he did not want to take up any more of WSC's time over personal matters; also that Moran felt it was unforgivable to have done this at any time, but especially when WSC was working under stress. Finally she asks WSC to forgive Moran for his own sake and hers. 19 Nov 1951
