JOHN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL (8th DUKE OF ARGYLL)
His frank clipped from an envelope addressed to William Gladstone
Free Frank signed: "Argyll", 5x2¼. Clipped from an envelope addressed in his hand to "The Rt Honorable/W. P. Gladstone/11 Carlton Terrace." George Douglas Campbell (1823-1900) succeeded his father as the 8th Duke of Argyll in 1847. Argyll was a prominent Whig politician, closely associated with Prince Albert. He served in the governments of four Prime Ministers: Lords Aberdeen, Russell and Palmerston and William Gladstone. Offices included Lord Privy Seal, Postmaster General, and Secretary of State for India. His wife, Lady Elizabeth, was Mistress of the Robes for Queen Victoria, a politically appointed post in that era. The Duke broke with Gladstone over the issue of Irish Home Rule, withdrawing from government in 1874. Actively interested in scientific matters, Argyll was a leading critic of Darwin's theory of evolution. He wrote books on topics as diverse as law, economics, and biology. His eldest son, known as Lord Lorne until he inherited the ducal title in 1900, married Queen Victoria's daughter, Princess Louise, in 1871. This letter was not addressed to Gladstone as Prime Minister, since British Prime Ministers have lived in #10 Downing Street since the 1730s. Toned. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
