#302 - Cecil Rhodes Estimate: $200+

British businessman, mining magnate, and politician in southern Africa (1853-1902) who served as Prime Minister of the Cape Colony from 1890 to 1896. A proponent of British imperialism, recent critics have characterized him as an architect of apartheid. ALS signed “C. J. Rhodes,” two pages on two adjoining sheets, 5 x 8, Groote Schuur letterhead, no date. Letter to "Chaplin," in full: "The bearer Fraser has been though all the fighting and will show you his letter from General Brocklehurst. He was up with us in Rhodesia but cannot stand the climate, and always gets fever. He knows telegraphy well and writes a good hand. You might know of something or else Eckstein. I seldom bother with anyone of mine but he cannot go back to our country on account of health, and wants to remain in Transvaal where he has been fighting." In fine condition, with intersecting folds and light handling wear.
