Descripción

Both items 4pp., 12mo, and bifoliums. Both in fair condition, on aged paper; the first with slight wear to one corner. In the first letter Pauncefote informs Aberdeen that Justice John Marshall Harlan (1833-1911), who has just visited him, is planning a summer holiday 'at Murray Bay in your Dominion'. Brief details of the itinerary follow, and then: 'He has requested me to use my good offices to obtain such customs facilities as can be granted to him [.] I may mention that as the Party only carry the usual tourists' outfit, the object is only to secure special courtesy at the hands of the Officials.' Pauncefote and his party are sailing to England 'in the St Louis' the following night, '& shall "jubilate" on the heaving wave!' He thanks him for allowing him to read his speeches in Chicago and Toronto, and sends 'admiring congratulations to the Countess on the L.S.D.' In the second letter Pauncefote requests similar 'customs facilities' for the French Ambassador Jules-Martin Cambon (1845-1935), 'who is "touring" in Canada. Should the Ambassador pay his respects at the Citadel, Aberdeen and his wife 'will find him most agreeable & interesting'. He hopes that Aberdeen 'will find Quebec agreeable, in spite of the wild revelry which I hear is to prevail during the sittings of the Commission'. N° de ref. de la librería 12229
