~ Admiral Lord Nelson's Wife Francis Leather Circa 1820 ~

The letter was sent from Paris between 1818 and 1822 by Frances "Fanny" Nelson (1761-1831), Nelson's wife.

The letter, written in the third person, reads...
"Viscount Nelson presents her compliments to Mrs Atkyns and requests the favours of her company to dinner on Thursday next 5 o'clock April 10th to meet her two friends Mr & Mrs Tarleton, it will only be a family dinner, 
Monday Evening, April 15th, Rue Monekre."

Tarleton most likely refers to General Sir Banastre Tarleton (1754-1833) - the British Soldier who served in the American War of Independence, and his wife Susan.

There are some light pencil annotations made by a former owner.

Top left "RARE 800"
Lower left "Wife Of Nelson"
Lower right Paris 1816 to 1822"

~ Dimensions ~

The document is 11cm wide by 12 cm tall.

~ Condition ~

The handwriting is clear. The edges are neatly trimmed. There is some light overall age wear, minor staining and a couple of very neat tears (professionally repaired), only very slightly affecting the text.

For further details and condition see pictures below....
