Description

A telegram from Louis Raymond de Montaignac de Chauvance (1811-1891) to Henry Shelton Sanford (1823-1891) on December 15, 1879. The telegram tells Sanford to ignore an address listed in Brazza, perhaps a reference to the French city of Brazzaville, founded the following year in French Equatorial Africa. The admiral notes that he will write to an unspecified geographic society from Paris, France. Admiral de Montaignac was a figure of some importance in various naval and political arenas during the French Third Republic. It is unclear how or in what capacity he knew Sanford.
