LANDSEER (Sir Edwin Henry, 1802-1873, Animal Painter)

Early autograph letter signed with his florid monogram 'EL', in his equally florid hand, here somewhat shaky, saying "Come as soon as you possibly possibly can, as I am very unwell - not heard from W Caitlin Pray come Yours EL", Dinmont Street, (off Hackney Road, near Cambridge Heath), 1 side 4½" x 3½" red-edged and conjugate blank, 1817 altered by Landseer to faint traces of gum in corners of blank fourth side

Landseer had already exhibited at the Academy, as early as 1815. The corrected date suggests January and winter, when he was still 15.
