Autograph letter signed, 1 1/2pp, 12mo, 28, Onslow Gardens, 20 February 1894. To St. Clair Baddeley, thanking him for sending "a very beautiful volume" (apparently about some aspect of Italian history), and telling Baddeley that he is fortunate in finding a subject "so little transversed" and at the same time, so largely depending on original documents." Together with an ALS (2pp, 12mo, on mourning paper, 28, Onslow Gardens, 25 November 1903) from Elizabeth Lecky to Baddeley, thanking him and "Mrs. Baddeley for your kind sympathy in my great sorrow. If anything could comfort me it is words of appreciation such as yours, of his character & influence, as well as of his intellectual gifts." Both letters lightly worn, but in good condition.

W.E.H. Lecky (1838-1903); Irish historian, essayist. Welbore St. Clair Baddeley (1856-1945); English poet, dramatist, world traveller, amateur archeologist and historian. (Item ID: 7672)
