Notes to servant yield royal sums

From Times Wire Reports

Collectors paid thousands of dollars for letters from British royalty to a trusted servant, including a note from the late Queen Mother Elizabeth requesting the aide to pack bottles of gin and Dubonnet for an outing “in case it is needed.”

The undated note sold for $32,000 at an auction near London of mementos belonging to William Tallon, who worked for the family for 51 years.
