Description

BENJAMIN DISRAELI autograph Letter Signed.

British Conservative prime minister, statesman and author.
 
ALS. 2pp plus integral blank leaf. Grosvenor Gate. February 2nd 1869. To "Sir".
 
"I have the honour to remind you that Parliament will meet on Tuesday the 16th February, and to express my hope that you may find it convenient to be in your place on that day, as business of importance may be expected." Signed with a good full signature.
 
Mourning edge stationary. 8vo. Approx 7 x 4.5 inches. With a contemporary financial calculation on verso of the integral blank totalling £9,350 (which in our more cynical political times would, no doubt, be construed as an MP's expenses claim!). In fine condition.
 
Benjamin Disraeli served his first term as Prime Minister in 1868. The Conservatives lost power to Gladstone's Liberals in the election of December 1868 and, at the date of this letter, Disraeli was leading the Conservatives in heated opposition.
