Lot 483: Prussian field marshal (1762–1823) who served in the War of the Bavarian Succession and Napoleonic Wars. ALS in German, signed "Kleist von Nollendorf," one page, 8 x 12.5, April 17, 1815. Letter to a Prussian tax official who had informed him that a sum of 5,000 thalers had been approved. Kleist thanks him for the message but comments that it is not sufficient, as the full requested amount was 10,000. In very good condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), chips and tears to edges, and significant paper loss to left edge affecting many words in the letter.
