Nelson & Bronte." Lady Nelson was the wife of Lord Horatio Nelson, the British officer most known for his participation in the Battle of Trafalgar. Lady Nelson, though a good woman and faithful to her husband, bored Lord Nelson, so he treated her badly. He had a long affair with Emma Hamilton, who bore him a child (Frances bore no children).

A rare historical letter in very good condition related to a favorite British historical figure.
