Wilberforce (William)

Autograph letter signed (‘WWilberforce’) to Miss Palmer in Birmingham, reading in part ‘Mrs W. tells me she is dispatching a packet to you and I am unwilling to let it go without a note of salutation from myself. Yet I am persuaded that it cannot be necessary for me to assure you of my friendly sympathy with you in the dispensation you have recently experienced. Your dear father had indeed gathered in his sheaves. But yet, as every succeeding year, by augmenting the veneration and affection that were felt for him, gave additional effect to all his expressing of pastoral or social or domestic wisdom and affection’, two pages, age-related toning, losses to margin due to seal removal, 8vo, Barley Wood, 31 May 1826.

Estimate: £300-£400
