Rare autograph letter signed by King George III regarding the payment of the Royal Regiment of Horse Guards. Signed “George R” in the upper left corner of the document. The letter is addressed to Councillors Dudley Ryder and Thomas Steele, joint Paymaster Generals of the Guards, Garrisons and Land Forces of the United Kingdom and notifies the recipients of the arrival of “the sum of twenty-six thousand and fifty four pounds…to be due to our Royal Regiment of Horse Guards for their pay from 25th December 1789 to 25th December 1790.” In near fine condition.

George III was King of Great Britain and King of Ireland from 1760 until the union of the two countries in 1801, after which he was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until his death in 1820. His life and reign, which were longer than those of any of his predecessors, were marked by a series of military conflicts involving his kingdoms including the defeat of France in the Seven Years' War early in his reign which made Britain the dominant power in North American and India. Many of Britain's colonies were soon lost, however, in the American Revolutionary War. Further wars against revolutionary and Napoleonic France from 1793 concluded in the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.
