Eigenh. Brief mit U.
London, 10. X. 1889. - 2¼ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An seinen Neffen Charles Octavius Paget (1846-1909), zum Tod von dessen Schwester Elise: "Dear Octie. It was, indeed, very sad news that I had to send; and the abruptness of a telegram must have made it very shocking. I have written to Edward and, no doubt, he has shown you my letter giving more particulars of Elise's illness & death than I could telegraph. Unhappily, I could not send any message from her: for I found her insensible and so she remained till she died. - The funeral is to be tomorrow and Fred, whom I saw yesterday, will be there with us. The grave will be next to your Aunt Katie. - It is very good of you to offer to send money, but there will be no need of it. I supplied as much as was wanted for the being brought to England, and Edmund has more than enough for all other things. Affectionately yours, James Paget. - Let me say that I should have telegraphed to you but that I was not sure of your address". - Die vorwiegend in Spanien, Frankreich und Italien tätige Malerin Elise Paget (ca. 1846-89) war bekannt für ihre Portraits und Landschaften in Öl und Aquarell. Wie der Adressat und die im Brief erwähnten Brüder Fred und Edward war sie ein Kind von James Pagets älterem Bruder Frederick (1805-67), der sich in Wien niederließ und dort 1851 das "Erste Privilegienbureau" für Patentvertretungen eröffnete; zu den frühesten Kunden des Unternehmens zählten Thomas Edison, Henry Bessemer und George Pullmann. Charles Octavius wurde seines Vaters Nachfolger; er starb 1909 in Mürzzuschlag.
