ROBERT NAPIER
He will write the Caucasus Irish article.
ALS: "Napier of Magdala" 3½p, 4¼x7. 9 Lowndes Square, no year, March 19. To Mr. Knowles. In part: "I shall let you know before the end of the week about the Caucasus Irish article. I was on the point of giving it up when I heard of an Anglo-Russian who I think will be able to help me with the Russian books. In any case the article will be brief-just enough to show that we manage these things at least as well as a 'Military Power' has done..." Robert Cornelis Napier (1810-1890), noted for his exploits in India, commanded the 2nd Division in the British expedition in China (1860) and served as acting Viceroy and Governor General of India (1863). From 1865-1870, he commanded the Bombay Army and commanded the punitive expedition against Ethiopia in 1868, taking the stronghold of Magdala. He was created 1st Baron Napier of Magdala in 1868 and Field Marshal in 1883. Paper clip marks at left blank margin, erased pencil notes at blank areas. Lightly soiled.
