George III (1738-1820) King of England (1760-1820). Autograph letter signed ("George R"), 1 page, on laid paper with royal watermark, aboard the St. Fiorenzo, Sept. 10, 1796. To his son Frederick, Duke of York, with excellent content. In part: "…It is curious so much interest was made that Sir Charles Gray might be appointed to the command of the forces in Ireland without it being known whether it would be agreeable to him, he having declined, I perfectly agree that…Lord Carhampton is the fittest person for that command. I have sounded Sir William Pitt, who approves the man having seen his conduct in Ireland that he is persuaded it will be an advantageous choice. I therefore approve your forwarding this arrangement; but this will certainly make it not right to press David Dundas to go there….The sooner the troops can begin to get into barracks the better…."
Estimated Value $800 - 1,000.

Realized $720
