Autograph Letter Signed to J. H. Roberts.

<H. Narconcakof?>, Brazilian Consul, Southampton, England [Brazil]
Publication details: 
Brasilian Consulate. | Southampton.'; 5 August 1871.

One page, 12mo. Very good, laid down on piece of larger, thicker, blue-backed paper. Amusing response to a request for an autograph. 'I do not know why you should bother about collecting consul's autographs. Consuls are generally a useless lot of fellows who do nothing and think a great deal about themselves. Instead of being intermediaries of trade they assume diplomatic attitudes; dress well, smoke well and so on. They should be diplomats. | I am not a Consul General, neither am I in London, but if my autograph is needed to add to your collection I give it here below.'
