Manuscript DS, signed “Victoria R." and "Entered accordingly, Feb. 12, 1838, Wellington",” one page both sides, 8 x 12.5, February 8, 1838. Order addressed to "Field Marshal, His Grace The Duke of Wellington" as colonel of the Grenadier Guards, instructing battalions of the guards to proceed to St. George's Barracks and to Portman Street Barracks, and directing all authorities to assist in "providing Quarters, Impressing Carriages, and otherwise, as there shall be occasion." Signed in the upper left corner by both the queen and the Duke of Wellington. In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds, light creasing, and a small tape repair to a fold split. A decidedly uncommon dual-signed document dating to within the first year of Victoria's 63-year reign.
