GENERAL CHARLES GEORGE GORDON (1833-1885) Autograph letter, signed 'CG Gordon', from Obeid, Kordofan, 3 October 1877, 3pp, 8, to Sir Charles Hartley, c/o Col. Sir John Stokes, thanking him for his letter and the copy of The Times, 'I confess I did not a bit like your thinking of going to the Colonies at your time of life, and with your reputation. I wish you could get the Suez Canal and Danube and spend your time between them. I am very glad you saw the Khedive [Ismail], I would willingly give my life for that man who has treated me so kindly, and for whom I can never do enough', he goes on to talk about his 'badly disciplined troops, bad officers &co' and mentions that he has travelled 2300 miles by camel this year (second leaf with fold tear repaired and stained at corners).
