126   imageNAPOLEONIC WARS - ISLAND OF ALDERNEY - 1d CONCESSION RATE EX "R[OYAL]. INVALIDS" REGIMENT; Remarkable 4 July 1796 front + flap sent from the tiny island of "Alderney" to London with mainly fine "SOUTHAMPTON/SHIP-LRE" on the front and London arrival cds (7 July) on the flap. It was initially charged "5[d]" but this was changed to "1[d]" - the Soldiers' 1d Concession rate - when the military status of both addressee (Musician in the 3d Regt. of Guards Orderly Room" and sender (with signed authorisation on the flap; "W. Mackenzie Stewart, Lieut. Commanding R[oyal]. Invalids [Regiment], Alderney 4th July 1796") was noticed.

He also mentions the "dame de ses penseés la fameuse Lady Hamilton, l'amie intime de la Reine de Naples", etc. Most interesting and worthy of further research.

130   imageITALY 1860 PAPAL STATES IRISH BRIGADE LETTERS/EARLY VOYAGE TO AUSTRALIA: Two interesting letters (contents only, no postal markings) written by Lieutenant/Captain Alfred Lawless to his father, from Spoleto, Papal States and dated 12 Jul. 1860 & 7 Aug. 1860. Transcripts accompany. Lawless commanded a company of 120 men in the St. Patrick's Brigade of the Papal Army and mentions his relationship with some of the 'more famous' figures such as Gen. Lamoriciere & Major O'Reilly. Contents ref. mention privations, lack of uniforms, weapons, etc. "Don't believe what you see in the papers at home...the men here have been most shamefully and disgracefully treated.....3 weeks sleeping on straw that is not fit for a pig." Letter mentions amicable relations between the Irish contingent and Swiss and Austrian allies, but enmity in camp with Italian allies e.g. "A terrible fight commenced on the first night, seven men were most frightfully wounded by the Italians who were armed but our poor men were not....you hear nothing of this in Dublin." The writer mentions a drastic form of censorship "I saw one in power here burn 300 letters belonging to the men.". Possibly explains the paucity of material from this campaign! Alfred Lawless died at Spoleto (probably of 'fever') later in Aug. 1860. Lot also includes several pages of a diary kept by Lawless on a voyage to Australia aboard HMS 'Warspirit' in 1857.
