The three items all cropped, but in good condition, on lightly aged and creased paper. ITEM ONE: Headed 'Extract from the Star of Thursday, 17th October, 1805. | Royal Westminster Volunteers.' 1p., 8vo. Printer's slug in bottom left-hand corner. Autograph note by Twining at foot: 'This was printed by the voluntary act of my honor'd friend Dr. Hes.' The report begins: 'ON Thursday last, the ROYAL WESTMINSTER Regiment assembled at their Parade in the King's Mews, for the purpose of a day's field exercise, and of presenting to Lieutenant Colonel TWINING, a Sword and a pair of Pistols, which had been voted to him when Major.' The report contains 'a correct copy', over 37 lines of small print, of Twining's reply. 'The speech was received with repeated and enthusiastic cheers. The pistols were very handsome, and the sword whcih is of the most exquisite workmanship, contains the following inscription. - "Presented by the ROYAL WESTMINSTER Regiment of Volunteers, to Major TWINING as a mark of respect due for his uniform and unremitting exertions in promoting the discipline, the honor, and welfare of the Regiment."' ITEM TWO: Headed 'General Order.' 3pp., 8vo. Bifolium. Containing transcripts of four letters: the first, dated 'HORSE-GUARDS, | 21st June, 1814' from 'FREDERICK, | Commander in Chief' [Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany]; the second, dated 'London, June 18, 1814', from Scott Portland to Col. Robertson; the third, dated 'Whitehall, June 17, 1814', a circular from Lord Sidmouth; the fourth, dated 'Parade, King's Mews, June 23rd. 1814' from Col. James Robertson, Lt. Col. Richard Twining, Junior, and Major Isaac Pocock. In the first letter in Item Two Prince Frederick passes on the Prince Regent's satisfaction at the 'Appearance and Conduct' of the 'Troops of various descriptions, who were Yesterday reviewed in Hyde Park, before their Imperial and Royal Majesties the Emperor of Russia and the King of Prussia'; in the third letter in Item Two Sidmouth announces that 'the remaining Corps of Volunteer Infantry, in the County of Middlesex' are to be 'released from their Military Engagements', 'Hostilities between this Country and France having been happily terminated by the signature of a Definitive Treaty of Peace on the 30th ult.'; in the last letter in Item Two the three officers congratulate the regiment 'on the Honor which you enjoy, in having thus received, at the close of your Services, the Thanks and Approbation of the Prince Regent, and of the Commander in Chief'. ITEM THREE: Headed '[CIRCULAR.]' and signed in type 'RICHARD TWINING, Jun. | Lieut. Col. late R.W.R.V. | Norfolk-Street, | January 2, 1819.' 1p., 8vo. Twining begins: 'Sir, | Although we are no longer united as a Regiment, yet I am confident there is a sentiment, which still forms a bond of union between us; I mean that of sorrow for the death of our late respected Colonel, James Robertson, Esq.' Robertson 'displayed the most constant and unwearied zeal' in the formation of the Regiment, and was actuated by 'the most elevated principles of loyalty and attachment towards his Country and his King' in the command of it.
