CHARLES XV (1826-1872, King of Sweden and Charles IV of Norway)

Fine Autograph Letter Signed in French with translation to 'Madam' saying he "received a letter from you last summer. It has given me great pleasure in proving to me that I am not outside the sphere of your remembrance and that you also remembered the once so happy times. You judge me, Madam, with the same sagacity of mind as in the past and yet time has had a wintry effect on this once poetical and ardent (fiery) heart. I would ask you to pardon the delay in my reply, but your request came at a moment when everything was at a standstill and it is only now that matters having become more settled that I am in a position to fulfil your wish, as I did not wish for a third person to be mixed up in this matter. I am glad that I have been able to help your son and I wish him all the best for the success of his talents. It is a pity that he has not become a soldier, it is the only calling where real glory can be gained and where one can think and act as a gentleman in spite of the materialism of our times. As for myself, I remain body and soul a soldier and I have only one wish which is to die on the battlefield and not in bed. I can see you smiling and saying to yourself 'he is still a madcap'. Well, I possess this madness and this hope, placing my destiny in the hands of Providence. Good-bye, Madam, I have chattered too much, but with you I have done it so often, that it has become second nature with me and overtakes me at a galloping pace. Mad or not, original if you like ...", 3 sides 8vo., on his crested letterhead, no place, no date
