To Alphons von Mensdorff-Pouilly (1810-1894). In German, translated: “Dear Alphons, I am most grateful to you for the kind letter on my so dreadful birthday. God willed it that way and so I must patiently and resigned seek to make the journey with difficulty and alone. But the heart is weak and one’s strength increasingly weakens. Arthur has written a very beautiful and sympathetic letter to me about my angel Albert. Please tell him again how touched I was. If you find something else in letters or diary of your mother about life in Koburg or about the visits on … with Fritz and Albert in Mainz, please copy it for me. Dear Arthur always made spelling mistakes and has addressed me A S and La Renne Vicotria! Poor Alexander writes discontentedly  about his forced stay in Lemberg. If only the matter would finish soon. I fear it will not. I am pleased to hear how satisfied you are in your domesticity, and little Resi as well. It was very nice of your wife to present this expensive comb. It is the same that dear aunt Louise had. Instead giving it to Gardel, she gave the comb which Gardel was meant to keep, to the poor Princess. I am enclosing a photo of myself with 6 of our children, our daughter-in-law and Louis v. Huston. I numbered the figures and wrote the names on the reverse side. Ever Yours dear unhappy cousin. VRg. Write to me again soon. Your letters are written so amusingly and remind me so much of the dear wonderful past, whilst I now live on my memories. Dear Albert always laughs so warmly about them.” Mailing folds, else near mint condition. Together with an original unsigned carte-de-visite photo of Queen Victoria, taken by Mayall in London. Victoria was fluent in German which was very often spoken between herself and Prince Albert. Uncommon letter, surely one of the finest you can hope to find.
