SIR THEODORE MARTIN
Poet Sir Theodore Martin wrote this third person letter in 1882 to say that his wife Helen Faucit was too sick to receive strangers. Martin wrote a biography of Prince Albert and a book of reminiscence of Queen Victoria.
Third person autograph letter signed in body: "Sir Theodore Martin", 1p, 4½x7. On personal letterhead. 3 Winslow Square (London), 1882 March 30. To Mr. Kent. In full: "Sir Theodore Martin presents his compliments to Mr Kent. Lady Martin, he regrets to say, is at present too unwell to receive strangers. But if Mr. Kent will send her the Memorial, of which Mr. Pigott speaks, it will receive her immediate attentions." Accompanied by unsigned, captioned illustration (b/w, 2¾x4 overall, image 2x2¾, one surface) of Martin at age 92. Martin (1816-1919), born and educated in Scotland, practiced law in London but made his reputation as a translator of poetry from Danish, German (Goethe) and Latin (Horace). At Queen Victoria's request, he undertook a 5-volume biography of the late Prince Albert, published 1874-1880. He became a close confidant of the Queen, and later wrote a volume of reminiscences, Queen Victoria as I Knew Her, published privately in 1902 and publicly, with King Edward VII's permission, in 1908. Martin married Shakespearean actress Helena Faucit (1817-1898) in 1851. Fine condition.
