FRANCIS WALTER de WINTON. Manuscript LS: "F. De Winton", 1p, 7x8¾. York House, St. James's Palace, S.W., 1900 February 2. On black-bordered personal stationery to J. F. L. Edes Esq. In full: "I am desired to convey the thanks of H.R.H. the Duchess of York, to 'The Richmond House of Commons', for the kind Resolution of sympathy which the members have so kindly sent." DE WINTON (1835-1901) was a British Army officer who successfully suppressed the Yonnies Rebellion on the West African coast (1887). After serving in colonial administrative posts in Africa, including Commissioner of Swaziland (1889), he returned to England as Household Comptroller for the Duke of York (1892). This letter was written near the end of the reign (1837-1901) of Queen Victoria. The DUKE and DUCHESS OF YORK at the time were the future King George V (1910-1936) and his Queen, Victoria Maria, who would ascend to the throne after the death of the Duke's father, Edward VII (reigned 1901-1910). Worthy of further research. Slightly creased. Folds, soiled at folds on verso of integral leaf. Fine condition.
