Title: Autograph Letter Signed 'Sutherland' and dated 'Dunrobin Sept. 15 1883'. With two contemporary photos.
Description: Letter by George Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, 3rd Duke of Sutherland (1828-1892) to 'My dear Sir'. 4 p. With a letter by Charles Longuet Higgins (1806-1885) to 'My dear Lady' pinned to the first leaf. Some spots and traces of glue (for an album), some creasing. Extensive letter (59 lines) written fast and not very clearly about the possibilities of meeting, traveling between L. (London) and Dunrobin, and various commitments ('The Ds. [Duchess] must be again here - for the Poultry show on the 27th'). In the attached letter, dated 'May 23rd 1881', Charles Longuet Higgins offers 'St. Anne's Society polling paper' to 'My dear Lady'. The letters come with two rather creased and damaged, contemporary original photos, one of a gentleman in a cap holding a large piece of game, a dog at his side; the other shows a coach with four passengers and two draft animals. From the letter collection of John Arlott.
