The fifth daughter and youngest child of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. ALS signed “Beatrice,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 4 x 6, personal letterhead, March 9, 1882. Written from Windsor Castle, a letter to Lady Erroll, in full: “Though I have hardly a moment to myself with the quantities of letters there are to answer, I must send you one line of thanks for your kind words & congratulations on our merciful preservation. At the moment I was so taken aback, that I could hardly realize the extent of the danger, though I at once knew the man was taking deliberate aim at us. It is most gratifying to Mama to receive so many messages of sympathy from all sides. We shall be very glad to get away to Mentone on Tuesday. I am looking forward so much to our stay there. With kind remembrance to Cecilia.” In fine condition. Roderick McLean attempted to assassinate Queen Victoria on March 2, 1882, at Windsor, England. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
