De Burgh, John Thomas   (1744-1808)
De Burgh, John Thomas

Irish nobleman and soldier, 13th and 1st Earl of Clanricarde

An extraordinary and important 4-page handwritten and signed letter in ink from a critical time in the war against Napoleon in the Mediterranean.

Written from his headquarters in Elba in February 1797 to Sir William Hamilton, British Ambassador to the Kingdom of Naples, it explains the circumstances of his decision NOT to evacuate the island.

Most interestingly, in addition to mentioning some of the greatest names of the Napoleonic Wars, including General Charles O’Hara (who had the unique distinction of having been captured by both George Washington and Napoleon himself) and Admiral Sir John Jervis, it refers three times to Nelson’s mistress, Emma Hamilton, wife of Sir William.

A fascinating and genuine piece of history as it was happening, of museum-grade quality and interest.
