Nelson Horatio letterNelson wrote the address following the bombardment of the French port of Boulogne

The lot is an address that was delivered to the officers of his flotilla following the bombardment of the French port of Boulogne in 1801.

It reads in part: "Lord Nelson has reason to be very much satisfied with the Captains of the Bombs for their placing their Vessels yesterday, it was impossible they could have been better situated and the artillery officers have shewn great skill in entirely disabling ten of the Armed Vessels out of 24 opposed to them, and many of the others Lord Nelson believes are much damaged."

We have this lock of Nelson's hair available.
