GEORGE, DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE
He signs his handwritten letter instructing that a document be copied and forwarded to the Colonial Office.
Autograph Letter signed: "George", 1 page, 4½x6½. Gloucester House, Park Lane, 1890 January 11. To Fouler. In full: "Will you please copy the enclosed & send it on to the Colonial Office." George, Duke of Cambridge (1819-1904), was the only son of King George III's seventh son, Adolphus Frederick. His sister, Mary Adelaide, was the mother of Queen Mary, mother of Kings George VI and Edward VIII. He commanded a division in the Crimean War (1854) and was present at all the major battles of that conflict with Russsia. The Duke of Cambridge was commander in chief of the British army for 39 years (1856-1895), longer than anyone else in history. In that position he consistently opposed innovation, and was said to promote officers on the basis of social standing rather than ability. In defiance of British law he married a commoner, actress Louisa Fairbrother. Lightly creased. Light horizontal folds (not at signature). Mounting glue and remnants on verso (slight show-through to blank edges). Fine condition.
