    Two page condolence note from Gavin Cambell 1st Marquess of Breadalbane.

    Message reads.
    Dear Cambell I am very sorry to hear the sad news of your fathers death. My reply is tardy to your letter but it did not reach me for some time.
    Lady Breadabane joins with me in our sympathy in your loss. Believe me yours truly Breadalbane.

    Breadalbane served as Lieut A&S Highlanders 1873-4.
    Shropshire Yeomanry 1877-87 retiring as Captain.
