- A handwritten note by Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson, dated July 7 1801.
Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson (1758-1805) was a British naval officer famous for his victories against the French during the Napoleonic Wars.
Nelson was known for his superb leadership skills and somewhat unconventional strategies.
Nelson was involved in battle almost constantly between 1793 until his death in 1805. During this time he lost the sight in his right eye at the Battle of Calvi in Corsica and lost his right arm at Santa Cruz in Tenerife.
Admiral Lord Nelson is remembered as one of the greatest British war heroes in history. He died during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
This note was written by Nelson six days after his return to England, following his victory at the Battle of Copenhagen in 1801.
The note is addressed to Nelson's cousin Colonel William Suckling (1762 - 1833). It reads in full:
"My dear sir - I send you Mr Yorke's answer to my letter, therefore very soon you must have an appointment. Send back the letter, and ever believe me.
"Yours most sincerely,
"Nelson & Bronte."
