Letter One (November 1848; folio, 1 p; on discoloured, creased and worn paper): Availing himself of Philippart's 'kind permission to contribute to the U. S. Magazine', Stocqueler is sending 'the commencement of a Historical Sketch' he has 'long meditated writing'. 'A note in this month's Dublin University Mag. has afforded the text - & the pretext'. It 'will be calculated to please the India Office', and will contain 'a good deal of personal sketch'. Addressed on reverse to Philippart at the Magazine's office at 19 Catherine Street, Strand, and docketed by Philippart. Letter Two ('Thursday', 12mo, 2 pp, good). Warning Philippart against 'being led' by Sir John Henniker 'into any publication regarding his affair with Captains Bray & Wilson. He adopted so infamous a course in regard to them some months ago, thro' the U. S. Gazette, that I was obliged to tell him to his face he was a poltroon - He swallowed the insult & sneaked away. There is no dependence to be placed on one word he says.' Bray is rich and will 'bring an action against him or those who publish any of his statements, on the slightest pretext'. Letter Three (10 August 1870; 12mo, 3 pp; good, on lightly creased and discoloured paper): He is returning the volume on the Victoria Cross. He has 'duly recd.' Philippart's note 'enclosing an extract from 's letter to you & have no doubt I shall be able to make some use of it if occasion shd. arise'. Discusses a newspaper of which '' has 'evidently been trying to dispose a part'. 'Who would be the business associate of one so wanting in temper or decision? Not I. Two months ago he gave me a month's warning. At the end of that time asked me to go on.'. N° de ref. de la librería 6663
