George Clarke

  • RC0268
  • Archief
  • 1690-1691

Fonds consists of 50 items, most of which are letters to Clarke concerning military matters falling under his control as Secretary at War. Several of the letters were sent to Clarke from Mullingar, where the English army established a military depot in 1690, and were received in various places as he moved through the countryside: at Dublin (Mar. 1690); Limerick (Aug. 1690); Cashells (Sept. 1690); Dublin (Nov. 1690); Clonmel (Dec. 1690); Kilkenny (Dec. 1960). Other letters concern Clarke’s personal affairs, with letters from his mother (who nonetheless also informed her son of military matters, as her husband had also been Secretary at War) and from the women who managed his manor at Kilkenny during his absence.

Ralph Sheldon fonds

  • MS092
  • Archief
  • 1779

The fonds consists of a bound manuscript, 48 pages in length, titled "A tour through part of Switzerland and the glaciers of Savoy & Berne in a letter to Richard Cox Esq." The manuscript is not dated, but can be deduced from references in the text. The trip took place after the death of Voltaire in 1778 but before the climbing of Mont Blanc which occurred in 1786. The mention of a Dr. Michael Schüppach, age 72, suggests the year 1779, which is confirmed by the indication that October 5th is a Tuesday. The manuscript is signed by Ralph Sheldon.
