Augustus Loftus diplomatic correspondence, 1821-1904
Scope and Contents
Augustus William Frederick Spencer Loftus (b.1817 - d.1904) was a British Lord in diplomatic service to Europe and Russia from 1837-1899.
The correspondence consists of 105 autograph letters and notes, 1 typed/handwritten letter, 2 typed letters, and 21 envelopes addressed to Loftus but without corresponding contents. Nearly all of the letters and notes are to Lord Augustus and/or Lady Loftus from members of the nobility of Great Britain and Europe, including members of the British royal family. Every effort was made to identify all correspondents, however, it should be noted that identifications were often best guesses based on titles and dates. Each letter has been assigned a number; an index is provided in this inventory.
Dated correspondence is arranged chronologically and is followed by the unidentified and/or undated correspondence. All pieces of correspondence have been transcribed wherever possible. Included within the correspondence is an autograph draft oration written by Loftus to Lord Worsley as well as a printed prayer.
