Horatio Nelson (17581805) was a highly esteemed British admiral best known for his participation in the Napoleonic Wars, during which, in the Battle of Trafalgar, he lost his life. AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED BY HORATIO NELSON CRITICIZING THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND. Partial autograph letter signed by Horatio Nelson Bronte clipped from a longer letter. The letter is two pages on one leaf, measures 7 by 4.5, and is in overall fine condition.

Admiral Nelson criticizes Queen Charlotte of England: Do you ever hear from the Queen? I fear that she is a time serving woman, and cares for no one except for those at the moment who may be useful to her. At a royal party in St. Jamess Palace on November 11, 1800, Nelson was shunned by King George III for wearing unauthorized foreign honors and awards and his mistress, Emma Hamilton, was refused an audience by the Queen.

Based on the content of the present letter, it is believed Nelsons relationship with the Queen soured after this reception. DO YOU EVER HEAR FROM THE QUEEN? I FEAR THAT SHE IS A TIME SERVING WOMAN, AND CARES FOR NO ONE EXCEPT FOR THOSE AT THE MOMENT WHO MAY BE USEFUL TO HER. It is seven weeks since I heard from Gibraltar, for I have no small vessels to send about. We are cruising here in hopes some day to get hold of the French fleet, and that will repay us for all our toils it is curious but truestudent at Bronte. This is one thing that I never heard of before, however I have sent Gibbs an order to receive this years rents, and to sell the stock on the farm, that the debts may be paid as soon as possible.
