Pasages [northern Spain], 16 June 1814. 2 pp. 10 x 8 inches, with the integral address leaf (no postal marks). In good condition. A campaign letter by Vice-Admiral Sir Charles Vinicombe Penrose (1759-1830), referring to “our joint service”, a naval and military joint operation during the advance into French territory. In December 1813 Penrose was appointed to command a squadron of small craft on the north coast of Spain and the coast of France, co-operating with the army. The service was peculiar and difficult; and the way in which the vessels under Penrose’s orders made their way into the Adour, and afterwards forced the passage of the Gironde, destroyed all the French vessels in the river, won for him the warm thanks of Wellington. “I have had more than one reason to regret that a little more information has not been given on some parts of our joint service about the Adour on account of the young men who were engaged on it ...”
