Autograph Letter Signed ‘Zamoyski’, to Doctor Donaldson, saying that Zamoyski’s son has asked his father to write to Donaldson about the price of equipment. In French. 1 page 7 x 4½ inches, integral blank leaf, light toning, a few foxing spots. 28 Charles Street, Berkeley Square, undated [?1860s]. Count Ladislas Zamoyski (1803-1868). Known as General Zamoyski, he was a hero of the doomed November Uprising of 1830. With a death sentence looming over his head, he took up the Polish cause in exile, becoming the right hand man of his uncle, Prince Adam Czartoryski, the ‘uncrowned Polish King’, who had once served as foreign minister to Tsar Alexander II. For the rest of his life, Zamoyski worked for Czartoryski, acting as his representative in London and organizing Polish legions to fight against the partitioning powers.
