An autograph letter signed by Frederick Beechey ('F.W. Beechey') to an unidentified recipient

Small quarto, 2 pages (one leaf); Holyhead, 12 January 1840.

Creased where folded for posting; traces of prior mounting on the verso, with the corner tips of the leaf lightly cockled; in every good condition.

The late arrival of the Commissioners of Railroads to a meeting has delayed Beechey's arrival in London, where he has 'an interview with the treasury on the subject of appropriating the remainder of the money' for a colleague's publication. In fine condition.
