HAHNEMANN-40190-1.jpg "OLD AGE HAS BEEN SWEETENED .. BY THE FACT THAT I HAVE ALREADY LIVED TO SEE SO MANY WONDERFUL RESULTS OF THE GOOD SEED I SOWED"
HAHNEMANN (Samuel, 1755-1843, German Physician, the Father of Homeopathy)

Fine Autograph Letter Signed in German with translation to Mr Jekyll, with envelope identifying the correspondent as Joseph JEKYLL, possibly the MP for Calne, (1754-1837), saying that he is glad that his "health has considerably improved and that I must have contributed something to this. I wish you total well-being and if I can further this in any way you only have to write .. you are often in my thoughts ... One of your friends will be bringing you this .. it will presumably be a different person from the one via whom you sent on to me a letter of recommendation as I haven't seen anyone like that this summer ... Mr Richard Dunford of Eaton has also taken the 4th edition of Organen with him in case you haven't got a copy yet. I am looking forward with great anticipation to seeing your undoubtedly excellent translation ... On 10th August the 50th anniversary of my becoming a doctor of learning was duly celebrated here with great pomp and ceremony. Mr Durnford will tell you all about that. A foundation was set up on the occasion for the establishment of a homeopathic clinical institute. The fund will be administered by Dr Mühlenbein, a personal physician and a member of the Council in Brunswick, and Dr Rummelin Menseburg .. the fund has been growing almost daily as the result of supporters of homeopathy ... Old age has been sweetened for me by the fact that I have already lived to see so many wonderful results of the good seed I sowed in hope ...", 2 sides 8vo, Coethen, 21st August

HALL-40625-1.jpg "THERE SEEMS LITTLE DOUBT BUT THAT ROOSEVELT WILL BE THE NEW PRESIDENT IN AMERICA"
HALL (Sir William Reginald, 1870-1943, Admiral in the Royal Navy, Director of Naval Intelligence in the First World War, The Dreadnought Project)

Fine Typed Letter Signed to "My dear Arturio" thanking him for a "book. I have not read it so it is a great treat to come. I am sending you a book but have not decided yet which one. I am sending to [sic] a line to Ivy Lethbridge as you suggest; I am awfully sorry for her. All very quiet here and life slips by without one seeming to do anything in particular. Faith seems to enjoy her life. She spent the last week in Town with an old friend and is off again on Friday ... Ess is very fit and hard at work planting bulbs ... Are you a coming here for a few days on your way back from Treniffle? I do think it would be good for you and Goda. The exposure of the Red tactics with the Hunger marchers will harden public opinion in favour of doing something to stop these demonstrations; it is sheer folly to allow London to be capsized by these ruffians and insurances become almost compulsory with many people who otherwise would not have to insure. I can't complain of course being in that trade! There seems little doubt but that Roosevelt will be the new President in America; I heard from Morgans intelligence man the other day. They seem to think that, though the election will not be popular with big business, affairs will settle down after a few months. The amazing thing to my mind is that Roosevelt should want to be President seeing that he is partially paralysed; It kills even a wholly sound man and R ought to last only a short time if he does his job ... if he is really wise, he will have a coalition cabinet and rake in some of the best of the Republicans. A National Government covers a multitude of sins as we know over here ...", 2 sides 4to., Hawk's Lease, Lyndhurst headed paper, 1st November
