Duke of Wellington, original Peninsular War Campaign Letter, Portugal 1810:
$997.31

WELLINGTON, Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke. Autograph Letter Signed “Ever My dear Sir, Your’s most sincerely, Wellington” to Charles Stuart, concerning the purchase of corn in Algiers by Mr. Johnstone and Mr. Sampayo, with tough words about the former who “has contrived to mix himself up in our concerns” and whose “efforts to make the Bargain better” have led to delays and inconvenience. 3 pp. 9 x 7 inches, in fine condition. Cartaxo [Portugal], 29 November 1810. A Peninsular War campaign letter entirely in the hand of the first Duke of Wellington (1769-1852) concerning the continuing problem of supplying the Army. Wellington’s correspondent, Sir Charles Stuart (1779-1845), was appointed British envoy to Portugal in 1810. His services at the Portuguese Court were invaluable to Wellington. Published in part in Gurwood, Dispatches of Field Marshal the Duke of Wellington, but with Johnstone’s name redacted. “It would be worth while to give Sampayo a hint that he will not improve his situation by a connexion with Mr. Johnstone. He knows that I have always treated him handsomely, and have been disposed to give a liberal consideration to any statement of losses incurred by those who have served the Army. But I will not be forced to authorise a bargain in the first instance which is inconsistent with the regulations and instructions of the Treasury, which is what Mr. Johnstone has invariably driven at since he has turned his mind to our concerns; and the consequence of Sampayo’s connexion with him will be, that he will exclude himself from them in future.”
