Woods (Heralds College, Lancaster Herald, and Registrar Secretary of the Order) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  24 Feb 1863.  “The Queen having been graciously pleased to issue a Warrant for the dispensing with the ceremony of your investiture with the Insignia of a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath, and to empower your Lordship to wear and use the same and to enjoy all the privileges appertaining to an ordinary member of the Civil division of the Second Class, or Knights Commanders, of the said Most Honourable Order, in as full and ample a manner as if you had been invested by the Sovereign, I have it in command to transmit to you, which I do herewith, the decoration of that division and Class of the said Order, together with Her Majesty’s Warrant of Dispensation.  I beg to enclose a form of acknowledgment for the receipt of the said Insignia.”    
       
Letter 14 Lord (James) Fife to Lord Augustus Loftus.  6 Mar 1865.  “Mrs. Inglis and her daughter, who are connections of mine, are now at Munich and have asked me to give them an introduction to your Excellency.  Any civility you may be kind enough to show them during their short stay, will be much appreciated by them.  I was very sorry that we did not meet when you were in London last year, but I was obliged to go North on business.  Lady Fife desires to be very kindly remembered to you.”    
       
Letter 15 Lord Westmorland (John Fane) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  22 Jun 1865.  Includes envelope.  “It was most kind and friendly of you to write to me and a great comfort to me to hear of Julian from Jon, for though I really believe he is now free from malady, he is always delicate and I feel very anxious about his journey in such very changeable weather.  I have a good account of him since his arrival in Vienna.  He wrote to me how kind you and Lady Augustus had been to him.  His departure makes a terrible blank in my house after having had him so long entirely with us.  [Lady] Rose is quite lost without him.  I have been suffering a good deal from bronchitis all the Spring, and as soon as Julian left me I went to Brighton from where I have a house for the Summer.  The London season will be cut very short for the Ministers expect Parl[iament] to be up by the 10th of July.  Your  [---]-[---] young King is interesting – He ought to marry a sensible wife but I don’t know where he should look for one.  Sir A. [M---] has come home on leave but he tells his friends he does not mean to return to Lisbon and intends to retire from the Service.  It has been too often reported that I shall not believe it till it takes place.  Rose begs her kindest remembrance to you and joins me in love to Lady Augustus.”    
       
Letter 16 Susanna Stephenia Innes-Ker Roxburghe to Lord Augustus Loftus.  4 Aug [1865].  “If I do not receive contrary directions by telegraph from Roxburghe, I leave England [---] [---] for Stockholm – [---] meet there my dear husband I love and I am much desirous, should time permit, to halt for a couple of days at Berlin, a place I have [---] of which has the additional attraction of the Princess Royal and yourself.  If I find I can accomplish this, I shall send you a telegram - feeling sure you would allow your servant to engage rooms for me at the Hotel l’Angleterre recommended by Lady Ely or elsewhere and would kindly desire a C[---]ficionaire to meet me as I shall only have English servants with me.  My young cousin [Miss Dalton] will be my companion – a man and one maid with us.  Should I telegraph to that effect, I shall hope to be at Berlin from Cologne on Saturday morning next the 8 Aug’st at 7.45.  If you hear we are coming would you be still further kind and let the Princess Royal know?  The Queen desired me to do so.  And of course if H. R. Majesty would allows [Dalton] and me to pay our respects or wished to see me either Sunday or Monday we should be very happy.  I am, you see, treating you as an old friend.  Pray forgive the trouble…”    
       
Letter 17 H. R. Jefferson to Mrs. Towns.  6 Jul 1866.  “ I cannot say that I was surprised by your letter announcing poor Mr. Town’s death, for we had been long prepared for it, but it gave me great pain nevertheless, as you may well suppose.  It will be much regretted, and nowhere more than at Montgomery where he was so well known, and so highly respected by everyone.  Although he had left the town many years before his death, he was never forgotten there, as I can testify.  For my own part I feel that I have lost in him one of my oldest and most valued friends.  I can truly say that there was no one for whom I felt a more sincere regard and I shall remember as long as I live the many acts of kindness which we have received from him in times gone by.  My mother and sister were I know much attached to him as intimately as we did.  I hope George and John are well; it really seems an age since I saw either of them.  But my lot is cast in another part of the country and I have few opportunities of meeting old friends.”    
       
Letter 18 Adelaide, Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein (Queen Victoria’s niece) to Lady Emma Loftus.  20 Feb 1867.  “Will you allow me to send these few lines to you through [Staatstrath Franke] in compliance to his wish of having the honour to be introduced to yourself as well as to Lord Loftus.  [Staatstrath Franke] is an old and most valued friend of our family, who for several years held a high civil employment in the Duchy of Coburg, which he left in order to devote himself to his country and to my husband’s cause.  He has now been elected as member of Parliament of North Germany, is going to Berlin to fulfill his mission, and would feel highly gratified, if you would allow him during the time of his stay, to present himself at your house.  I feel truly glad, in fulfilling this wish of [Staatstrath Franke], thereby to have the opportunity of telling you, dear Lady Loftus, how often I think with great pleasure or your visit from last summer, trusting that at some future time we may renew our intercourse.  Will you kindly remember me to Lord Loftus.”    
       
Letter 19 Duke of Wellington (Arthur Richard Wellesley) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  22 Dec 1867.  “I take this liberty of introducing to you and to Lady Augustus an old friend of mine O. Gorman Mahon, whom I doubt not that you will find a most agreeable and intelligent company.”

Letter 26 Henry Fawcett (economist) to Thomas Jones (Cooptive Lock Co.).  18 Oct 1868.  “I find it somewhat difficult to send a reply to your letter.  My sympathy with the cooperative locksmith’s is so sincere that I do not like to refuse their application for assistance; and yet without further information I believe I should not be acting wisely in sending your pecuniary aid.  When we had our conversation at Birmingham we unanimously agreed that the additional capital you require should not be given but should be subscribed by those who consider that your society offers a reasonably good investment.  I understood that you would have prepared a careful statement of your financial position and prospects, until such a statement is prepared it is impossible for any one like myself to advise his friends to lend you capital.  I should therefore advise you to issue an exact account of your position.  This account ought to be authoritatively examined by a professional accountant.  You might then propose to issue debentures and we should be able to tell our friends the exact nature of the security upon which these debentures would be based.  I am sure you will believe me when I say that I offer you this advise from a sincere desire to ensure your permanent success.”.    
       
Letter 27 Henry Fawcett (economist) to W. Hewker (Cooptive Lock Co.).  4 Dec 1868.  “After due consideration, I have come to the conclusion that I must decline lending the cooperative locksmith’s any money, either on loan or debenture.  I trust my decision will not be misunderstood; it does not imply the slightest diminution of my confidence in their ultimate success.  I have been actuated chiefly by the two following reasons; first, the amount I could afford to lend is so small, that it could really give no practical assistance; secondly, as an advocate of the cooperative movement, I am sure it is much better that I should have no pecuniary interest in any cooperative concern whose management I could not in some degree superintend.  My friend, Mr. Thornton, who is writing a book on Cooperation, tells me he was authorized by the committee at Wolverhampton to peruse the accounts which you sent me.  I will therefore forward them to him.”

Letter 28

Biddulph, Mary F. to Lady De la Warr [Lady Elizabeth Sackville, Baroness Buckhurst and wife of George John Sackville].  15 Feb 1869.  “I have this morning received the enclosed letter from the Queen to send you.  I heard of your interview with Phillip [---] from [---], sad and painful as it must have been, I am so very glad you [have seen him and heard all].  May God help you to bear it all, for indeed it is most terrible for you.  The Courtenays are here and lady Caroline wrote me a note to say how anxious they both were to hear about you, and so I went to their house yesterday, and told them all about you and Lord De la Warr.  They were both most kind, and [---] heartily sorry for you, indeed they feel very much for you.  On Saturday I hope to be with you again…”

   
       
Letter 29 [Le Grand Mouréchal de la Cour] (Berlin) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  Invitation from royalty.  In French.    
       
Letter 30

Archibald Campbell Tait (Archbishop of Canterbury) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  21 Aug 1869.  “I have been informed that your Lordship has consented interest yourself in the erection of an English church in Berlin.  Knowing all the trouble which you had in a similar work at Baden Baden, I should not have been surprised if your Lordship had refrained.  If your Lordship knows how the [scheme] is prospering and thinks that I can take any action which may be of use I should be glad to hear from you.”

   
       
Letter 31

Comtesse de [Bruhl] to Madam.  22 Jan 1870.  “H.R.H. the Crown Princess [Alexandria, Princess of Wales] is deeply grieved by the death of Lady De la Warr whom she valued most highly as a kind and old friend.  H.R.H. would have written herself to express her sympathy for you at this very sad loss, but being not very strong just now she hoped you will kindly accept her expression of it by me, and believe that how the remembrance of having met Lady De la Warr only last year, is doubly precious to Her Royal Highness, the Crown Princess charged me with many kind messages for yourself and Mr. West…”

   
       
Letter 32 Arthur Russell to Lord Augustus Loftus.  25 Nov 1870 with a handwritten note by Lord Augustus Loftus.  “Will you be kind enough to have the enclosed letter forwarded through the K. Kriegsministerium to General Bartoul, a prisoner somewhere in Germany – it is to enquire after his A. de C. the son of a friend.  Excuse the trouble I am giving you and let me thank you beforehand.”     
       
Letter 33 B. [F---] to Lord Augustus Loftus.  12 Dec 1870.  “As one of your older acquaintances, I send you these few lines to beg you to do me a real favor.  In the exalted post you now occupy at Berlin, you cannot easily be informed or the details as to petty miseries and wretchedness to which the French prisoners are subjected and hitherto undergone by reason of cold, bad and poor diet, consequent hunger and insufficient supplies of clothing, added to the usual distress occasioned by disease and sickness of all sorts which carried off so many victims.  I now appeal to your kind heartedness and benevolence to interpose with the Prussian authorities on behalf of my unfortunate fellow countrymen, in order that their treatment may be ameliorated in these above named requests…”    
       
Letter 34 R. N. Lawley to Lord Augustus Loftus.  5 Jan 1871.  “I have received an answer from the Emperor by post, and am very much obliged to you.  Also for your own kind letter.  You will be sorry to hear that Wenlock with whom I passed Xmas, has lost the sight of his left eye through the explosion of a pin cartridge on Oct 10th.  Lords Stair and Dunmore have also each of them lost the left eye from gun accidents this season.  And now Henry Eliot of the F. office has done the same!  I daresay you remember Vincent, who traveled with your brother.  Well!  I enclose you a letter from his native place, which I think will interest you, and which I trust you will kindly return me through the F. O.  By the bye the York Post office charged me 2d for your letter, which was not stamped.  If I mention this, I trust you will not be offended, but I think you ought to know it, as I have no doubt you are charged postage enough by your Agent.  I was in London last month and saw Henry Greville but had no time to call on Lady Augustus in Wilton Crescent.  I trust I shall meet you in the season there, and that this horrid War will come to an end.  Though like you I see no prospect of it.”    
       
Letter 35 Lord William Russell Bedford to Lord Augustus Loftus.  4 Mar 1871.  “Pray my dear Diplomatic Disciple – attached once and not detached as you kindly assure me.  Transmit the endorsed—which I misdirect [---] probably [---] but it does not signify provided it reaches.  I am quite delighted at the results and all the glory and being [---] cannot forget my youthful war notes which were all abhorrence of the Corsican Parvenu and his aggressive brigand so I twaddle on and do not progress with the age and am [c---] at witnessing the third taking of Paris—the end of the Mushroom Dynasty.  ‘Sic transit Gloria Fung.’  Let me hear from you and receive my diplomatic Blessing in my Doatage [sic]?    
       
Letter 36

Unidentified author (Windsor Castle) to unknown recipient.  18 Mar 1871.  “Princess Louise was much touched on receiving a letter from Lady Biddulph [Mary Agnes] containing one from Mr. West, in which he expressed a wish his dearly beloved wife had mentioned.  The very pretty present which has been sent in her name will ever be much prized for her dear sake.  The Princess is so pleased to possess the photograph of Mrs. West.  The months of deep sorrow Mr. West has gone through have not passed without many sympathysing [sic] much with him, and praying that he may have strength to bear his heavy trials.”

Letter 38 Mary Francis Elizabeth Stapleton Falmouth (Baroness Le Despencer) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  17 Jul 1872.  “I am asked to bring before you the name of a young clergyman now officiating at Baden who is very anxious to attain the now vacant appointment of chaplain there and I only hope whilst I am thus mentioning his name to you, you will not have forgotten mine tho’ it is long since we have met!  I have known Archibald White from his boyhood and have every reason to believe him to be a very pains taking clergyman of no extreme views and to have borne an excellent character in the [c---] he had for some years in London so that I have much pleasure in recommending him to you…”    
       
Letter 39 Lord Shaftesbury (Anthony Ashley-Cooper) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  9 Dec 1873.  “I have received your letter and its enclosure which I have forwarded to my daughter-in-law.  I have to thank you very heartily for the great kindness you showed to the [H---] family when I took the liberty of introducing to your [---].”    
       
Letter 40 Unidentified author to Lord Augustus Loftus.  1 Jan 1874.  “Mr. Phillips, the bearer of this is the son of William Phillips and the great jeweler in Cockspur and he comes over partly in connection with the jewels he has made for the Duke of Edinburgh.  He is a very superior gentleman far beyond those in his position and if you could be of any aid or assistance to him during his detention at [St. A---] I shall be much obliged.”

Georges de [---]bourg to unknown recipient.  Mar 1875.  In French.

   
       
Letter 42 [A. Bauer] (Windsor Castle) to Lord Sackville.  18 Dec 1878.  “Before leaving England to-morrow I must thank you for your letter of sympathy which touched me deeply.  This terrible loss for so many is also a very great one for myself linked as I was for many years with the dear Grand Duchess [Alice].  How utterly changed Darmstadt will henceforth be to me.  I quite dread the return tho’ my whole heart is there and in that desolate house, whose very soul the Grand Duchess has been.  Princess Beatrice desires me to thank you for the expression of your sympathy and all you say about her beloved Sister whom she so deeply mourns.  In this new sorrow Her Royal Highness has to take the place of that very sister in lightening its weight to the Queen, as she had done in ’61.  The sympathy shown by the whole nation as well as by the people of Germany is a comfort to Her Majesty and the Grand Duke as far as that can be.”

Lord Derby (Edward Henry Stanley) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  4 May 1883.  Includes envelope.  3 additional envelopes without content.  “I have a few minutes before the mail goes out in which to answer your telegram of the 1st.  I am afraid there is nothing to be done.  [He---olard] is not vacant, and I do not hear that there is any likelihood of a vacancy.  So that matter will keep.  You don’t say which is the age of your aide de camp.  (I presume he is your son) nor which previous service he has gone through.  Please add these details, in case I should be able to do anything for him.”

   
       
Letter 47 Charles Douglas Richard Sudeley to Lady Anne.  1 Dec 1883.  “Alas my interest at the Colonial office is very slight but I shall be very glad to do anything in my power for the nephew of so old a friend.  Poor Lady Meriam.  I am very sorry for her, it is most sad.”    
       
Letter 48 Howell & Bonnin, Auctioneers and Surveyors to [Sir Saul Samuel].  19 Feb 1884.  “I received your message and now in accordance therewith am going to give you the benefit of a spare ten minutes.  I don’t know whether the enclosed autographs are any use to you.  One is a letter to us from William Henry Drummond (eighth Viscount Shathallan).  This Scotch peerage title was created in 1686.  He was born 1810 and was Lord in waiting to her Majesty 1858-1859 and 1866-1868.  The small scrap of paper bears the writing and initials of Adeline (Marchioness of Tavistock).  She is the daughter of the third Earl Somers and married the eldest son of the Duke of Bedford viz (Marquis of Tavistock).  I have also a letter from the Duke of Somerset but I cannot part with it yet as the matter is still in hand.  we have been trying to enjoy our little silence as much as possible.  Tonight we are having a small dance at [Tregunter] Road.  Thursday we are going to a dance at Uncle Josh’s Tallington Park.  I seem to have been out to a tremendous lot of dances this year and am getting rather tired of it.  Business seems to be looking up a bit now, I am glad to say and if it will only continue the same as it has been this month I shall be quite satisfied.  I like my new quarters extremely.  Everything is first rate.  Pater invested in an overmantel for the drawing room the other day and gave me the glass that was there so that improves the look of the room a few.  Somebody has sent me a Valentine in the shape of an [A---soar].  The writing looks something like yours.  Is it?  The subject is very innocent and ‘happy landy’…”    
       
Letter 49 E. L. Blanchard to Herbert [Hawkes].  14 Oct 1886.  “Your letter addressed to the [A---] club has only just reached me this morning.  For the last seventeen years my autograph has regularly appeared every Friday in print in the column of the Birmingham Daily Gazette, a newspaper which I presume is no stranger to your neighborhood.  Trusting this information may be of service I remain yours with compliments.”    
       
Letter 50 Lord Henry Thurstan Knutsford to Lady Ely.  5 Oct 1887.  “I need hardly assure you that it would give me great pleasure if I am able to meet your wishes and find Mr. Loftus some place.  But I fear there is not little chance of this just at present.  The list of applicants is very long and I am bound, for the sake of the Colonial Service, to give great consideration to the claims of those who have been in the service and earned promotion.  I will, however, remember Mr. Loftus’s name and give such favourable consideration as I can.  You would be surprised to know how few moderately good places there are out of tropical or unhealthy climates at my disposal.”    
       
Letter 50 John Henniker-Heaton Lord Augustus Loftus.  10 Oct 1887.  “The enclosed letter just received from Lord Knutsford appears incredible.  Surely Lord Knutsford wrote to Lady Ely!  Write to him tonight reminding him of this, in the most polite manner, but thank him for the communication you understand he sent to me today.  I think now he cannot long defer giving you an appointment.”     
       
Box 1:3      
Letter 52 H. W. Just (Colonial Office) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  19 Oct 1889.  “I get to acknowledge your application enclosed in your note to [---] Haillie Hamilton and to say that your wishes have been placed [---] and that Lord Knutsford, as he has already promised, will be happy to consider your name with those of others for any suitable vacancy, although he cannot give any further assurances in view of the great number of qualified candidates upon his list.”     
       
Letter 53 Lord Jersey (Victor Albert George Child) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  17 Aug 1890.  “Would it be presuming too much on your good nature if I were to ask you what out of wages you paid to your English man-servants at Sydney?  I do not know what I ought to offer to the coachman or the butler.  Any hint you could give would be much appreciated.  I cannot say how kind I think it was of you to take the trouble to come down and coach me.  Lady Jersey came back and was very sorry to find that you had flown.”    
       
Letter 54

Sir Francis Philip Cunliffe-Owen to Lord Augustus Loftus.  15 Jul 1891.  “The Council of the society of arts will be appointed a Royal Commission to carry out the Chicago Exhibition, with a limited grant to be voted by Parliament.  I don’t see exactly at the present moment what honourary position you could hold in connection with the forthcoming Royal Commission unless you forego entirely the project you have of representing some large firm, as it would not be possible to combine both functions.  I need hardly assure you that I shall have the greatest pleasure in giving you a letter of recommendation to any large firm requiring the assistance of a Representative at Chicago; as I feel quite sure from the experience I have had of your services, that you would perform your duties to the satisfaction of all concerned.  I think it would be better to hold me in reserve as ready to support any application you may make for such an Agency, instead of giving you a general letter, which has never so much effect as one directly personal.  Perhaps you would allow me to know what you have been doing since 1886, as it may help me to further your wishes.  I apprehend that as the salaries connected with the forthcoming Royal Commission must necessarily be very small it will be much better for you to address yourself to any of the large firms until you have ascertained which of them are likely to take part in the Chicago Exhibition; but rest assured that I shall be glad to help you at all times and trust that I may succeed in furthering your hopes.”

   
       
Letter 55 Lord William Hillier Onslow to Lord Augustus Loftus.  17 Feb 1892.  “I am already engaged in promoting another candidate and unable to assist you.  Indeed I find that it is more prudent to trust only to [this] application made by the candidate.”    
       
Letter 56 Sir Saul Samuel to Captain Loftus.  3 Aug 1892.  “I am starting in the morning for Buxton, and have only time to write to your very hurriedly.  I shall not be in London when Dr. Renwick arrives.  Mr. Yardley will speak to him for me as you request.”    
       
Letter 57 [L---] to Lord Augustus Loftus.  20 Jul 1893.  “The appointment you name is already practically filled.  I will bear in mind what you say, but am not in the way at present of hearing of things likely to suit.  It would be a great pleasure to me to be able to see my way to being a help to you.”    
       
Letter 58 [L---] to Lord Augustus Loftus.  11 Oct 1893.  “I hope that your wishes may be met in the case of your present application.  No [---] with which you would discharge any duty entrusted to you is in itself a strong recommendation in your favour, and your ‘record’ and connection with men interested in agricultural matters, should prove additional argument to further the favourable consideration of your candidature.    
       
Letter 59 [L---] to Lord Augustus Loftus.  12 Oct 1893.  “I am sorry to say I am not a sufficiently sturdy [Home Ruler] to be able to ask favours of the present so called ‘government’.  I send [sic] a general note in case it may be of any use.”    
       
Letter 60

Lord William Hillier Onslow to Lord Augustus Loftus.  Typed and signed letter, 30 Oct 1893.  “I have heard from my brother-in-law with respect to the appointment of your son to one of the inspectorships under the Swine Fever Act.  He informs me that all the offices have been filled up but that he is keeping his name upon the list in case it should be possible to do anything further in the matter. 

   
       
Letter 61

John Lumley-Savile.  (Ambassador in Rome) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  28 Feb 1894.  “If I have delayed in replying to your kind letter of medial advice it was because I wished to be able to tell you the result from remedies which I employed at once.  I cannot say that I have as yet any relief from the acute pain I suffer day and night but the ‘Salycine’ acts upon me as a tonic and has improved my appetite which had left me for several months past; I use a flesh brush and an embrocation of ‘mentholiato’ and chloroform and I shall certainly continue to use these remedies for some time.  I quite agree with all you say on the subject of ‘anarchism’ but I feel as you do that the heart of the Nation is sound; the lower classes in England are not anarchists as was shown at the funeral of [B---] when the funeral car and its contents would have been wrecked by the mob had it not been for the action of the Police.  The self inflicted death of that ruffian may produce a deterrent effect on others like him, but more beneficial still would be the lynching of the next anarchist.  Many thanks for your kind promise to send me a copy of your book.”

   
       
Letter 62

Oscar Stephens to Lord Augustus Loftus.  28 Apr 1894.  “How very kind of you to write and congratulate me.  I am naturally very pleased and I am sure you would be had you seen the kind letter the Queen in her own hand wrote Alex telling him of her intention to confer the honour.  I expect the FO are not pleased but Her Majesty was evidently this time determined to have her own way.  Alex, I know, like myself feel, how much he is indebted to your kindness and training.  He has never forgotten your goodness to him in early days, he will prize your congratulations.  I am expecting him over shortly.  I congratulate you on finishing your interesting work.  I shall read the volume with [the] same great pleasure I have had in perusing those you so kindly sent me.  Please convey my kindest regards to Lady Augustus…”

   
       
Letter 63 John Lumley-Savile.  (Ambassador in Rome) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  29 Jul 1894.  “It was very kind of you to think of writing to enquire after my health; I regret to say I have nothing good to report of myself; my condition appears to be hopeless to judge from the inefficacy of the advice I have received from so many doctors and the failure of the remedies that I have given them up and have come here on my own [hook] to try the water cure which did me good many years ago.  The pleasures of a London Season no longer exist for me, I can accept no invitations and I cannot even enjoy the opera or theatre, not even the exhibitions of pictures which is a great [dep---ation] to me.  Here the country is lovely and the air delicious and I should greatly like to drive about but my troublesome complaint renders even that too painful for pleasure; we have a good deal of rain which we owe to the fact that Malvern is 1350 feet above the sea level but I am glad to say in Notts we have secured a famous crop of hay, my bailiff at the Home farm tells me we have enough for this year and next, all other crops are doing well so I hope there is a good time coming for the farmer.  But what will happen if Harcourt’s outrageous scheme of confiscation becomes law on the ground that all property belongs to the State and the owners are only permitted to enjoy the margin not required by the State.  If we were on the eve of a great war one might understand a temporary measure of that kind but why the landed aristocracy be ruined to fill the coffers of the Treasury with countless millions, in [---] times of peace.  How well the Duke of Devonshire in his admirable and moderate speech on Thursday last showed that the plan which was evidently devised to ruin the nobility by virtual confiscation would affect the poor still more for the cessation of the employment of Labour would deprive hundreds of thousands of their existing means of living.  There was however some consolation in the last sentence of his speech that at no distant time this taxation will have to be revised from the very foundation and placed on a more equitable and fairer basis…”    
       
Letter 64 [L---] to Lord Augustus Loftus.  23 Dec 1897.  “I fear I cannot undertake an advocacy of a London Exhibition to be held immediately after that at Paris.  But your best plan will be to send this letter which I return direct to the P[rinice] of Wales’s Sec., Francis [K---].  My own feeling is that these Exhibitions are only successful when they are held [---] in the interest of time.  If I were you I would ascertain what the Chambers of Commerce say to the scheme before asking the P[rince] of Wales…”    
       
Letter 65

[L---] (Windsor Castle) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  23 Nov 1899.  “I am sorry that the enclosed in not more favourable.”

Abingdon) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  21 Aug 1900.  “Thanks for your just received.  I am here for a week after having been in camp at [Yarmouth] for a fortnight.  I am sorry I cannot second Captain Fenton as I am not a member of the Bath Club.  I took my name off two years ago or I should have been very pleased to second Fenton.  I shall not begin shooting till meddle of September as hence I was ill two years ago I have not been able to do any hill walking on account of my leg had Phlebitis but am gradually getting strong once again and circulation going all right now.

Letter 70

Henry Charles Keith Lansdowne to Lord Augustus Loftus.  20 Oct 1902.  “I am sorry not to be able to comply with your request that your son should be transferred to Cadiz; but unfortunately the exigencies of the [C---] Service make it impossible for me to do so, and I have been obliged to avail myself of the unexpected vacancy to provide for an official who has been for nine months without pay or [---] owing to his inability on account of health to return to a pestilented post which he held in  Africa.”

Letter 74 Lord [Burghersh] (John Fane, later the Earl of Westmorland) to Lord Augustus Loftus.  21 Apr.  “Thanks for four letters and for the trouble you have taken about the money I lost.  Unfortunately I know neither the [---] the note nor where I got it from, and I have quite given up all hope of getting it back.  I do suspect a servant, tho’ I have really no grounds for doing so.  I have just done here, what you have done at Berlin having had the money changers told not to take a 100 £ note without communicating with the Police, but my idea is that if it was taken by the person I suspect, when they found what the amount was, they will have been frightened, and will not present it for a very long while.  The Duke of C. arrives tonight and upon him now depends my departure, I shall go with him, W. will make the tedious journey to Trieste more agreeable than it would otherwise have been.  I hope he shall soon get at these gentlemen and of the result of the [h---tre] I have very little doubt.  There are reports here that your [---] man has at the last refused to put pen to paper, say what you want but here are better fellows then those you have to deal with…”    
       
Letter 75

Unidentified author to Mr. Blackburn.  Handwritten fragment, 9 Feb.   “I have the illumination quite safe and like parts of it very much but I think it is too pictorial.  An illumination and a vignette are different things—if your work is considered as a vignette you have destroyed its effect by too much litter on the paper—if considered as an illumination, your colours are not trenchant enough nor your forms piquant enough.  I am very sorry you do not like the Edinburgh Bible, which I think very near absolute perfection of illuminated work.  I wish you would copy a bit of it carefully, say the letter at the beginning of Jeremiah.  I want to know if after doing so you still remain of the same mind.  I like the black angel very much; the thought of it at least [---] which I think is quite new.  The little John Baptist I don’t like at all.  I have no notion of preaching children and think all the Raphaelean St. Johns with crosses and lambs simple absurdities.  In one of my 13th century M.S.S. St. John is represented as a tall [---] in a grey mantle of camel hair walking slowly forward with a disk in his left hand enclosing a lamb to which he points with his right hand but so quietly that the gesture is hardly seen; and as he walks, he treads upon two heads just seen above ground—one that’s of Herod, the other of Herodias—both crowned.  This is sublime in its typical and mysterious embracement of the saint’s life and martyrdom.  But shouting children with sticks and bits of paper are never Renaissance vanities.  You have made a grave error in the composition by putting your two crosses of red, the Magus and David, close to each other therefore equal to each other—this alone is enough to destroy the effect of the page.  It must have been mere oversight, for you compose too well in general not to know the first great principle of all composition—never two principal features of equal importance.  I am in [---] tonight; but I shall be most happy to see [Mr. Emmet] or anybody else whom [Mr.] McLeod would like me to know but [Mr. Emmet] I shall be most grateful for…”

Armytage which brought on a duel.  They fought at Calais.  [---] [Balkeby] fired but missed and Armytage fired in the air.  [---] for a divorce but the [---] says he won’t be able to obtain one.  Mrs. A. has joined her husband and I believe they are abroad at present.

Unidentified author to [Osborne].  Undated.  “I hasten to reply to your kind note that I have not the faintest hope or belief of any of the unfortunate crews of the [---] or [---] being at present alive.  Indeed there is every reason to fear that they left their ships in consequence of the want of provisions.  [A]nd we other wise infer from the sad mortality which was rife subsequent to their leaving B[---] Island in 1846 that scurvy was very prevalent amongst them.  I have little doubt that all perished in 1848 and I entirely agree with you that further search would be needless risk of human life.  I grant that further traces might be collected if a party could be on K.W.’s Land throughout a whole summer season.  That can only be done by a vessel placing herself in the position of the ill fated ships and with the risk of the repetition of another such catastrophe as that in which I lost many dear friends and the country a most valuable band of officers and seamen.  Apologizing for the haste in which I am [---] to write owing to my departure from town for a few days.
