    King Edward VII of England Autograph Letter Signed "Albert Edward". Three pages, 4.5" x 7", Easthampstead Park letterhead, Wokingham, June 18. 1885. An interesting letter, written as Prince of Wales (a title he held longer than anyone else 1841-1901), in part: "Private. My dear henry, As I know Abergaruing [?] so well as he 'pulls the strings' just now. I thought I would not do better than send your letter on to him & beg him to bring your name before must not lose a moment when the new admiralty comes into office- as this govt is bound to be of short duration you will all have 'To make hay whilst the sun shines'..." The future king was right in his prediction; the Marquess of Salisbury of the Conservative Party became prime minister the month after this letter was written, but remained in office only seven months! Very Good condition; some weakness and minor separation at the folds. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
