    Empress Victoria of Germany, Autograph Note Signed, as Princess Royal of the United Kingdom, one page written on front, 4.5" x 7", on notepaper embossed with the Royal Arms featuring the shields of both Great Britain and the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, December 1, 1849, Osborne. Two original folds, else near fine. Sold with a cabinet card, 4" x 8", of Victoria dated Feb. 87. The cabinet card is trimmed at the top.
    The note is actually a receipt, "Received from Lt. Col. Phipps the sum of £1.0.0., my monthly allowance." It is clearly signed "Victoria" in a very mature hand for a nine-year-old girl.
