Wellington Handwritten Letter

Wellington Handwritten Letter

British Gen. Wellington, Napoleon's rival, vouches for the conduct of an officer in this fascinating handwritten letter dated July 21, 1811. Written in scratchy hand with a feathered pen on both sides of 9 x 17" paper, the note speaks of Wellington's involvement in even relatively small military matters. Wellington wrote this miraculously maintained document (EX) a short time before he helped the Spanish win the Battle of Talavera. That earned him a viscountcy. He then became an earl in February 1812, a marquess in October and finally the Duke of Wellington in 1814. He signed "Your most obedient servant, Wellington" (10/10). If anybody besides Napoleon could use a single name, it was Wellington.
