The 1st Duke of Wellington (1769-1852)
a.l.s. dated Dublin Castle Nov. 9th 1807 to D. Mahony, acknowledging gift of prints of the Rajah of Coorg.
The paper water marked WHATMAN 1801. After making a name for himself in the campaign against the Mahratta’s, Arthur Wellesley briefly entered politics as M.P. for Rye and was appointed Chief Secretary for Ireland 1807-1809. His subsequent military career is legendary and his long involvement in English politics in old age was stoical if uninspired.

D. Mahony is probably Major Dennis O’Mahony of Dromore Castle, Co. Kerry.
