Autograph Letter Signed to [the Duchess of Argyll] [Elizabeth Campbell, Duchess of Argyll & 1st Baroness Hamilton of Hameldon], Society beauty etc]

Donald Campbell, intermediary for the Nabob of Arcot
Publication details: 
"Argyll Street, Wednesday", no date.

Three pages, 4to, some marking, but text clear and complete. Campbell claims to be in "habits of confidence" with "the Nabob's [Nabob of Arcot]" and is requesting that a high level letter give full "redress for grievances" rather than having a "hackneyed stile". The letter contains references to people and events which demand close knowledge of this period of Indian history, particularly revealing of relations with at least one Indian Ruler.
