Description: CATHERINE THE GREAT CATHERINE II; EMPRESS OF RUSSIA. Letter Signed, "Caterine," as Empress, to the Crown Princess of Courland, in French, congratulating her upon her marriage. 1 page, small 4to, with integral blank; folds, faint scattered foxing; full morocco clamshell case, gilt-lettered spine. Saint Petersburg, 10 January 1766

Notes: ". . . My affection for the House you have recently entered will remain steadfast. Your marriage to the Prince, who will someday become its ruler, guarantees that you will partake in that affection but your own merits give you special claims upon it, claims that I will grant you with great pleasure. . . ."
