Political invective, corrections, implied threats, invitations, theatre notices and despatches from the House of Commons: a collection of letters from the 1840s to the Irish editor and journalist at the Globe Newspaper, Edward Moran.

21 autograph letters written on a variety of different sized papers, quarto down to octavo, one with black mourning border. Generally very good condition if lightly soiled. Several bearing remnants of wax seals or embossed letterheads; several written from London clubs or the House of Commons. The correspondence includes requests for publication of enclosed letters (letters not present), corrections, implied threats, invitations, notices of births and marriages, and requests for back copies and theatre notices. Letters include:

M FORSTER, 1844 3 sided ALS on ‘City of London Club’ headed paper, setting the record straight, to a piece printed in The Globe regarding the administration of the Gambia: ‘... the acting Governor… came away in August leaving the colony in charge of a police magistrate, a notorious imbecile!’ referencing Edmund Nash Norcott and Captain Charles Fitzgerald RN, Governors of Gambia 1844 and 1844-47, and acting Governor Sir John Iles Mantell (1844) at the moment when The Gambia became a colony in its own right, no longer a deputy-governorship under Sierra Leone. Refers also to [11th] Earl of Strathmore and Edward Smith-Stanley, Colonial Secretary in Peel’s second government, later 14th Earl of Derby and three-times Prime Minister.

AUGUSTUS ELLIOTT FULLER (MP for East Sussex, 1841-57) ALS, 11th March 1844 on black-bordered House of Commons mourning paper to correct a mistake ‘in your paper of this day’ in which was reported the circumstances of the accidental drowning of Fuller’s grandson at the home of the boy’s father, Owen Fuller Meyrick. 11th March 1844.

BARON ANDLAUrequests publication of a letter (not present) which he received from the Mayor of Preston, with copy of Edward Moran’s reply to reverse.

Arthur Vere, 1 July 1840, deploring the actions of Mr. Phillips, Counsel for the Defence, continuing to plead his client’s innocence even after the Swiss valet Courvoisier’s confession to the murder, in 1840, of his master Lord William Russell. 1 July, 1840.

The Globe was a British newspaper that ran from 1803 to 1921, founded by Christopher Blackett; it merged with the Pall Mall Gazette in 1921. Under the ownership of Robert Torrens during the 1820s it supported radical politics, and was regarded as closely associated with Jeremy Bentham. By the 1840s it was more mainstream and received briefings from within the Whig administration. The Anglo-Irish editor of the newpaper who received these letters, Edward Raleigh Moran died in 1849.
