About This Item

March to May, 1837. About 2800 words on 8 pp. 12 x 8 inches, horizontal folds. Provenance: Strides Auctions, Chichester, 2005. From letters we have located, we have identified the writer as Lieutenant William Robinson, setting out for South America to take up appointments in HMS Fly and HMS Stag (see O’Byrne, A Naval Biographical Dictionary). Robinson later commanded the Arrow ketch in South America and at the Cape, where he captured an armed slaver. Offered with this account is a letter by Wm. Robinson to his wife (1864) with advice on how to claim a pension in the event of Robinson’s demise, and some extracts from certificates of service of a later William C.Robinson, Assistant Paymaster, 1863-79.
