Letter to Sir John Philippart

 Collection — Folder: 1
Call Number: MS P690


Archibald Haiv? writes from Goodwood, Chichester, West Sussex, England to Sir John Philippart (1784?-1875), a military historian, and encloses a draft of an editorial [not included with the letter at Spencer Research Library], which Haiv would like Philippart to add to and place in the Naval and Military Gazette. Haiv, with the support of the Duke of Richmond and Lord Raglan, hopes the editorial will sway subscribers to choose land rather than plate (silver) as a testimonial.
