COLLECTION Accumulation of ca 70 ALS etc. from a collection made by A.M. Broadley.
The letters, many of a political nature and the majority from peers (and one or two ladies), cover a broad spectrum of subject matters, ca 1790-1820. Many relate to military matters, particularly advancement, and several are, inevitably, of a social nature. The condition is generally good, though the majority show signs on having been formerly mounted.
