About this Item

Autographed letter signed. San Francisco, 1850's. 1 page. 7 3/4 X 9 3/4 inches. Dillon (1812-1857) was born in Ireland and educated in France. He served as French consul in Hawaii in 1848-1849 and in San Francisco in 1850-1856). He was contentious and controversial in both of his Pacific Rim assignments. In Hawaii he encouraged a small French Naval invasion of the islands before he was removed from office. In San Francisco he was involved in both the Raoussett-Boulbon and Walker "invasions" of Mexico. In 1854 he was arrested for refusing to testify in a case against the Mexican consul De Valle. This refusal caused an international incident. In this brief note to a C.W. Jones, Dillon tries to set up a meeting prior to going on a hunting trip. Letter is on light blue paper and has been folded. Clean copy. Bookseller Inventory # 017607
