1893 Letters Present to John Gordon Kennedy, Consul-General to the Republic of Chile, Signed by Queen Victoria and with her Great Seal Attached. Manuscript on vellum, signed at the head Victoria R.

", giving Sir John Gordon Kennedy (1836 - 1912) full diplomatic powers "... For the better treating of and arranging any matters which are now in discussion, or which may come into discussion between us and our good friend The President of the Republic of Chile.. Appoint him our undoubted Commissioner, Procurator and Plenipotentiary.. It notes that Kennedy was already "our Minister, Resident and Consul General to the Republic of Chile".

Attached to the document is the complete original Great Seal of Great Britain in yellow wax, appended by silk cord and with both silk tassels still present. The seal is contained in the original black tin skippet. Dated January 11th 1893 and signed at the Royal Court of Osborne (Isle of Wight). Diameter (tiny chip to upper border clear of design), both sides clear and with good detail. Occasional minor grime or small stain patches present, though overall in good condition. The signature clear and bright. A Parliamentary system of Government was established in Chile following the 1891 Civil War, and the award of full diplomatic power to Kennedy may have been an attempt by the British Government to gain influence and favourable trade agreements within the country during a period of political stability.
