DescriptionEmpress 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.

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
