ALS signed “H. Clinton,” one page both sides, 6.5 x 8, April 15. Letter to "His Royal Highness, The Duke of Gloucester," in part: "I am infinitely obliged by your Royal Highness' gracious condescension in sending the inclosed. I think I can judge by it that all goes well in every report. We are backing in exactly as I hoped HRH would. I wish others felt as much for the poor soldiery as HRH does; such attention we expected & repaid warmly in time of need…I almost think the next Head quarters will be Carteau…I don't understand there is any movement offensives on the part of the French / who I judge will remain quiet." Includes the integral address leaf addressed in Clinton's own hand. In very good to fine condition, with edge tears, and the integral address leaf cleanly separated but present. Accompanied by an engraving of Clinton bearing a preprinted facsimile signature.
