Letters of William Frederick, 2nd Duke of Gloucester

With 'Memoranda of that Part of the Campaign 1794 comprized between the 22nd of May & the 25th July' and battle plans drawn by William Frederick of engagements between 17-30 Apr 1794.

Also a 'Memorandum concerning the Letters of W. F. Duke of Gloucester addressed to his father Wm Henry Duke of Gloucester during the Campaigns of 1794 & 1799', by his sister Princess Sophia Matilda, 28 Dec 1837. Sophia Matilda labelled and sealed the paper wrappers in which the files of letters were originally sent, and also the linen bag in which they were all contained.

The letters date from 1794, when Prince William was fighting in Flanders, 1799, during the campaign in Holland, and 1803-1804, when Prince William was on a tour in northern Europe, and are predominantly written by him to his father.

William Whewell: miscellaneous letters, diaries, Vice-Chancellor's cash book, writings, Robert Leslie Ellis notebooks, and a collection of franks

These boxes of miscellaneous papers includes six travel diaries kept by Whewell, two notebooks kept by Robert Leslie Ellis, and a cash book kept by Whewell as Vice-Chancellor from Nov. 1842 to Nov. 1843. The other letters are a miscellaneous grouping and include some letters written by Whewell. The franks are part of a larger collection gathered by Cordelia Whewell, which may be found at Add.MS.a.77/5-125 and 273-323. Her autograph collection is housed as Add.MS.c.65-66.

William Whewell letters received from Julius Charles Hare, letters received by James Lempriere Hammond, and a collection of franks

This box contains a miscellaneous grouping of material, some gathered by William Whewell, some by Cordelia Whewell and retained by William after her death, and some material gathered after William's death by his executor James L. Hammond.

The 47 letters from Julius Charles Hare to William Whewell date from 1822-1850 (Items 126-162).

The collection of franks of bishops and peers (Items 5-125, and 273-323) appears to have been created by Cordelia Whewell. Another part of this frank collection is housed as Add.MS.a.80/163-238. Cordelia also gathered a collection of autographs (housed as Add.MS.c.65-66).

The letters to James Hammond from Ann Newton, William Whewell's sister, are dated after William's death and concern his papers and the preparation of a biography (Items 163- 172, 174-206). The other letters to Hammond are in response to his appeal for letters from Whewell for use in a biography (Items 207-272) and are written by Whewell's correspondents or by the children or relatives of his correspondents. Some of these letters sent by these people may have been added to the collection elsewhere, and the letters in this box may provide evidence of provenance for these items.
