Autograph Letter Signed 'N.V.' to Lord AUCKLAND, (William Eden, 1745-1814, from 1793 1st Baron, Politician and Diplomat), saying that "the anxiety which for some days we have felt on account of the firing on the French Coast is at last dissipated", since in fact "no such firing took place. The Moniteurs", the semi-official organ of the French government "of the 9th 10th & 11th [February 1814] ... bring no military news but great accounts of the cordiality between Castlereagh & Caulincourt", (General Armand de Caulaincourt, 1773-1827, Napoleon's envoy for peace terms at Châtillon-sur-Seine), on the other hand "it is reported in the City that a telegraph account has reached Dunkirk mentioning the defeat of Genl. Blucher with the loss of 6000 prisoners. This may be a mere fabrication, but if true would prove that preliminaries were not signed on the 11th when the action is said to have taken place", there is however "no reason to conclude that the allies have met with any severe reverse", 3 sides 8vo., with Vansittart's engraved portrait in his heavily embroidered robes as Chancellor of the Exchequer (1812-1823) from the European Magazine for 1st May 1817, the letter no place, no date, but February the engraving a little browned at edges
