Gordon at Khartoum.- Gordon (Charles George, army officer, killed at the siege of Khartoum, 1833-85) Autograph Postcard signed to the Rev. Horace Waller, 1 side, 120 x 85mm., Khartoum, 11th March 1884, "My dear Waller, Thanks your note 8.2. received today. Thanks for your united prayers. I am learning or trying to learn to submit my will to His, with the thought that He never promised us comfort or success in the things of this life. He promised us great tribulation here, and peace in Him, therefore He is still faithful, if things do not work out on this earth as we in our foolishness would have them. May He be glorified & may His will be ours", stamped from Egypt; and another, a composite "Union Flag" invented and constructed by Gordon at Khartoum for the enjoyment of Horace Waller's children, with Autograph Note by Gordon explaining how to turn down parts of the flag to make other flags, "Turn down on blue field... you have flag of England...", framed and glazed, [1884] (2 pieces). ⁂ Rev Horace Waller (1833-96), missionary and slavery abolitionist; friend of Gordon and David Livingstone.
