Early Letters

Front Cover
These letters cover Queen Victoria's life up to the death of Prince Albert in 1861. The aim of the collection is to reveal the Queen's essential character, rather than to follow the many events and transactions of her reign. Her writings show that she was no verbal artist, but her voice, unlike that of any other British monarch, can be heard in her letters - consoling, confirming, rebuking and cajoling. The letters show clearly the laborious patience and social movements of her time.
