About This Item

1898. Near Fine. 1 handwritten letter on both sides of a piece of Naval and Military Club stationery with the club emblem and a black border, dated 13 July 1898. General Bindon Blood (1842-1940), a British Army commander who served in India, Southern Africa, and Afghanistan, is responding to an invitation. He was in London briefly in the summer of 1898 after being appointed major general and before returning, as he references here, to the Meerut district of India, "which is one of the very best commands in India." He was appointed in command of that district in September 1898. Although he spend part of 1901 fighting in the Second Boer War, he returned to India later that year. In 1907 he retired to London. Winston Churchill served under Blood in 1897 and dedicated The Story of the Malakand Field Force to him. In Near Fine Condition: small discoloration on the first side; otherwise, clean and crisp.
