PREFATORY NOTE 

Mr. Reilly's Collection is distinctively a Napoleonic one, and as such ranks 
as the finest gathering of literary, historical and artistic property relative to the 
life of Napoleon that has ever been brought together by a Private Collector, and 
to be ofTered at unrestricted public sale in America. 

An enthusiastic Collector for many years, Mr. Reilly has shown exceptional skill 
and intelligence in bringing together some of the more notable and important items 
relative to, and illustrative of the life and times of the great Emperor from the time 
of his first appearance as a factor in the military life of France, through the eventful 
days following, down to the final stage of his career and his death on the Island of 
St. Helena, May 5, 1821. 

Among the personages represented by important items in Mr. Reilly's 
Collection will be found the names — ^not alone of Napoleon and members of 
the Imperial Family — ^but also those of great rulers, statesmen and famous women 
identified with his career, as well as nearly all the great Marshals of France and 
other military men and civil officers whose influence helped to shape the events of 
the time and which lead to Napoleon's triumphs and ultimate downfall and death. 

A Collection such as this is would be next to impossible to duplicate. It is 
therefore of unusual interest and fitting that Mr. Reilly should offer the same at 
this time- — ^The Anniversary Period of Napoleon's Death. 

The following are some of the notable features and important items: 

Engravings: Special attention should be called to this feature of the Collection, 
as in the selection of the same Mr. Reilly had the choice of the best that was to be 
had and through his agents was able to procure many of the choice prints from the 
Latta, Halsey and Crane Collections, thereby bringing together many of the 
beautiful Color-Prints and Fine Proof Impressions of the Rarer Napoleonic Por- 
traits and Views, and which include the work of noted French, English, Dutch, 
German, Austrian and Italian engravers in Mezzotint, Aquatint, Stipple and Line, 
both in Color-Prints and Black and White. These comprise Portraits of Napoleon, 
members of the Imperial Family, Companion portraits of Napoleon and the 
Empress Josephine or of Napoleon and Marie Louise, Portraits of Napoleon's 
Marshals and other French officers, as well as those of military personages in the 
ranks of the "Allies;" Engravings of Famous Battle Scenes; Views of St. Helena 
at the time of Napoleon's residence there and other incidents connected with his 
life. All the Prints Are in Fine State and Neatly Matted with French 
Mats. Among them are, — 8 aquatints by Alix, of which 6 are printed in colors, 
including a fine impression of Chambraces, Bo7iaparte and Lebrun, with autographs

orders transmitted to it by mail, telegraph or telephone will be faithfully attended to without 
charge or commission. Any purchases so made will be subject to the foregoing conditions of

it to me, woe unto him who would touch it! Pleight, i^; width, J4. 
inches. Attached to orange ribbon, bordered in green. 

The Order of the Iron Crown was founded by Napoleon, June 7, 1805, to commem- 
orate the founding of the Kingdom of Italy, and to encourage faithful service to 
the crown, by admitting to the Order those who rendered loyal service in any 
field whatsoever. There were different degrees of membership, Napoleon himself 
being the Grand Master of the Order. Only the Kings of Italy could succeed 
him in this office. The silver medal, like the one above, represented the lowest 
degree in the order, and was to be worn on the left side. The motto inscribed 
on the crown are the words uttered by Napoleon at his coronation in Milan, as 
he placed the crown on his head. 

An account and reproduction of the medal is to be found in the work by Koechlin 
"Les Ordres de la Couronne de Fer," [No. 735 in this catalogue] where the same 
is illustrated on page 3.

was present at Napoleon's death bed. He was a great friend of Lord Panmure,

described in the catalogue of the Trutnan sale as 'probably unique,' and wrongly 
attributed to George Cruikshank, who may have etched it. Two copies of the print are

IBBETSON, DENZIL 

66. Napoleon the First at St. Helena. Oil Painting. 

A sketch made by the artist at St. Helena, the morning after Napoleon's 
death, which took place the evening of May 5th, 1821, at sunset. The 
features had fallen away during his illness, but the fullness in his 
throat remained, the countenance was very placid, the color of the skin 
very yellow and there was a redness about the eyes which had the 
appearance as if the head had been beaten and bruised. On the back 
is a lithograph of the same, copied by John Gibbs, and lithographed 
by Day & Son. 

Height, 18^ ; length, 25 inches. Framed. 

A picture similar to this sketch was painted by the same person at St. Helena, im- 
mediately after the sketch was taken, and was given by Sir Hudson Lowe on his 
return to England after the death of Napoleon to King George IV. This pic- 
ture is now at Hampton Court, and it appears by a periodical work called the 
"Act Union" that the performance of it is attributed to Madame Bertrand.

Gentlemen of the Consistory of the Cojisistorial Church, Protestant Reformed Church of 
Paris, all Europe knows the motives impelling us to wage the present war. The bad 
faith of the King of England who has violated the sanctity of our treaties, by refusing 
to observe Article 10 of the Treaty of Amiens, who has attacked our cojnmercial vessels 
without a formal declaration of war, the necessity of a J7ist defence, all force us to 
have recourse to arms. This letter is being addressed to you in order that prayers tnay 
be offered up in your church according to your rites, to draw down the blessing of 
Heaven upon our just enterprise. The proof of your zeal for the good of the State 
assures me that you will grant my request with pleasure.

by Napoleon, the writer states (translation), — and it would be desirable to accede to 
the condition, if it did not in fact do away with one of those regulations which appear to 
be necessary for the safe custody of his person. . . Unless you can so qualify the con- 
dition as not to be exposed to such an abuse of the indulgence, it will be fit to persist in 
the refusal of it.

398. Berthier (Louis Alexandre, Prince of Wagram — Marshal of France). 

A. L. S., 2>^pp. folio. Paris, September 22, 1792. To the National 
Convention. 

Important and interesting letter as it gives us an insight into the character of one 
of the greatest military figures of the Empire, and an outline of his early career. 

The letter addressed to the National Convention asking that justice be done in 
his favor tells of the Minister of War's refusal to appoint him as brigade-major to 
Marshal Luckner, who had requested it, and of the Minister's letter to Gen. Keller- 
man to see that he (Berthier) be removed from the "Armee du Centre." 

Partial translation, — 

I look up arms with my fellow-citizens to serve the great cause we are defending. Once 
war was declared, I went to the front, and I merited, and I say it that all may know, the 
esteem of the Army and of Generals Luckner and Kellerman. . . Obedient to all 
authority, I left the Army with Gen. Kellerman s highest commendation. . . Once 
in Paris, I called on Mr. de Servan, confident in the patriotism, and uprightness of the 
Minister of War. . .Ah, Gentlemen, put yourself in my place for one moment and 
you will understand how hard it was for me to leave my companions in arms when they 
were fighting . . . but even in my inactivity, I wish to help the cause of Liberty as 
best I can. Then follows the donation of his military decorations to be sold for the 
benefit of soldiers' widows. 

It has been said that I communicated with the enemy, that I had emigrated with plans 
of the Army. No, Gentlemen, the man who respects himself, the free man and the man 
worthy of freedom, does not answer such an accusation. He continues to serve his country, 
and loyal to the nation, to the maintenance of liberty, equality, and the observance of the 
law, he dies at his post.

Important Historical Letter relative to Napoleon's campaign in Spain. 

Napoleon had just been recalled to Paris because of serious conditions throughout 
Europe, and did not wish to have it known for the time being that he had left the 
active command of his army in Spain. In a letter to his brother Joseph, he mentions 
that the army is to be made to believe that he has gone to Saragossa, and that he 
will return shortly. 

A detailed account of his secret departure from Spain at this moment is contained 
in "Correspondance de Napoleon ler. Vol. 18, pp.220 to 228." 

In this letter by Berthier, the general contents of which are the same as those found 
in the above reference, the translation, reads in part, as follows, — / am sending 
yon one of my aides-de-camp, fiom among the officers in His Majesty's service, to inform 
you that political matters have decided ihe Emperor to return w Paris. His Majesty 
started out this inorning at 7 A .M. The general staff and the Imperial Guard are to 
remain at Vallodolid under the command of the Duke of Istria. His Majesty expects 
to return in March and during his absence the command will be left to his brother. King 
of Spain. 

The Emperor's departure is not to be made public. If ihe Guard remaining at Vallo- 
dolid should be sent to another field, only then is it to be made known that the Emperor 
has left the command of his artny. His Majesty has ordered ine to remain here . . . to 
receive the letters of the Dukes of Dalmatia and Istria, until the King has informed them 
that he is co7nm,anding the army. I shall depart only if nothing new turns up, or if the 
English reembark; and until I leave Vallodolid, I shall continue to issue orders in His 
Majesty's name. 

Then follows instructions for the Duke to send daily reports to Napoleon, and 
duplicates of the same to him.

[No. 420. Bonaparte (Elisa) — Contimied] 

Italy, and the Rubicon River has landed a large number of brigands who kill and 
steal. The writer goes on to say she had written to the Vice-Roy and that he had 
shown himself indifferent. (Transulation) The French in Tvscany are alarmed; the 
Croations seek but to unite themselves with the Austrians. One of these battalions has al- 
ready been sent to the Isle of Elba, and the other is to remain in Livornia; and other 
military precautions have been taken. Sufficient troops are lacking to protect all the routes 
leading into the Duchy, viz., — that of Bologna, Modena and Parma, and Rimini, and if the 
enemy crosses the Po River, it will be impossibleto withstand them. The Kingof Naples 
promised to aid Southern Italy with his troops upon orders received from the Emperor. 
The period is a critical one, but hope revives at the return of the Emperor. 

421. Bonaparte (Elisa — Grand Duchess of Tuscany and sister of Napoleon I.). 

A. L. S., I p. 4to, No place, October 2, n.y. To ["my dear Lucien," her bro- 
ther]. 

A cordial letter in which she expresses surprise that her letter to her brother in 
answer to his about the earthquake should have gone astray. All letters destined for 
Rome and Naples being forwarded through Pisa, inquiry will be made at Pisa for 
missing letter. Mentions that Jerome (their brother) is now 'recognized; that the 
Emperor and Empress passed through Mayence on Thursday. Sends her love and 
that of the children to him and his family. 

422. Bonaparte (Elisa — Grand Duchess of Tuscany and sister of Napoleon I.). 

A. L. S., ip. 4to, Pitti, 7 A. M., no date. To ["my friend," one of her 
brothers]. 

Interesting letter in which she sends her brother news of Napoleon's victory on 
the Danube, later details to follow through d'Hautmesnil; all is well in the Grand 
Duchy [Tuscanj'] since the 'bandits' have been routed; promises to send a bulletin 
of 'this memorable affair' as soon as possible; closes in affectionate terms.

October 12, no year {circa 1821 to 1825). To Madame d'Esmenard, Paris. 
Unsigned. Tear in first leaf and hole in second, not damaging contents. 

Full of interesting data and humorous comments. The writer touches upon her 
stay at Havre, where she visits everybody, and goes everywhere, seeking distractions 
continually so as to forget the sad past and not think of the future. Compliments 
her friend upon her young daughters, for their tact and general refinement, which 
are far rarer qualities than talent, commenting on the fact that in America it is very 
hard to acciuire a polished manner. She gives her impressions of the English in a few 
phrases, remarking among other things that they always travel with calomel and 
Peerage, their most popular book. 

Upon the works of Byron, and particularly Don Juan, which she has been re- 
reading, she states that a perfect knowledge of human nature is displayed in the 
work, commenting, — (translation) They say his wife is in love with a Preacher. I 
hope he beats her so that she inay have some feeling, at least, physically. I think that 
that is the only kind of feeling of which such a woman is capable. All the women read 
Don Juan, but it is improper to say that one reads such a work.

Very Rare Broadside Proclamation Issued by Napoleon's Step-Son, 
Eugene Beauharnais (or Eugene Napoleon), to His French and Italian

under Murat, who, he says, is united by ties of blood to the "Grand homme" even as 
he himself, making his defection all the more dishonorable, beseeches his men to 
rally round him, the "son of your Sovereign," assures them that he will never cease 
to love and care for them, and concludes the Proclamation with the famous words, — • 
[Translation] — Italians! In the annals of foreign nations they alone are immorlal who 
knoiv how to live and die faithful to their sovereign and their country; faithful to their 
vows and their duly; faithful to gratitude and honor.

Carnot. On the Return of Napoleon from Elba. Written in ink on 10 4to 
pages, with numerous corrections and cancellations in the Author's Auto- 
graph. [18 15] 

Carnot, an eminent statesman, in 1802 became a member of the Tribunat, and 
opposed Napoleon's assumption of imperial power. In 1815, during the Hundred 
Days, Napoleon appointed him Minister of the Interior, because he felt the neces- 
sity of giving some pledges to the friends of liberty. 

The above manuscript is evidently the original copy of the address delivered by 
Carnot to his colleagues, in which later makes known the situation of the Empire 
on Napoleon's return from Elba, its needs and resources. 

The following is a translation of part of the address, — • 

Barely three months have passed since the Emperor left the Rock of his exile, to return 
and deliver his country from the insupportable yoke of its enemies and those bearing 
French names. . . His presence alone was enough to dissolve a revengeful and 
perfidious government . . . and the total collapse of the dynasty occupyijig the throne 
was proof sufficient as to the wish of the vast majority of the people.

that Marie Louise is in a very poor state of health. . . Her position is terrible. She 
is practically a prisoner in her own country . . . the great hero of this Century is 
never -mentioned by her, and neither a portrait of him is in her room at Parma or at

Third Session, Thursday Afternoon, May 5th 

[No. 542. Davout (Louis Nicolas). — Continued] 

Davout, who was Minister of War during the Hundred Days, and General-in- 
Chief of the French Armies after Waterloo, from which command he retired during 
the same year, writes in part, as follows, the translation, — 

Whilst our brave armies watch over the well-being of the empire and her independence, 
their August Chief, wishing to do all in his power to restore peace to our country, has just 
terminated his long undertakings by the most heroic sacrifice. He renounces his supreme 
rank and thus forces the enemies to show tvhether they are sincere in their declaration, 
and if it is really against his person alone that they have declared war. 

. If Europe is willing to have peace France will owe it to Napoleon; if our 
enemies have been false in their proclamations , if they continue an unjust war, without 
reason, then brave warriors, present an impassible barrier to their efforts. A great 
nation defending her independence cannot be subjugated. Let every one rally round that 
Eagle which has so often led you to victory. Napoleon is doing everything that depends 
on him, he is sacrificing hifnself to the hatred of his enejnies to spare the shedding of 
your blood; be always ready to shed it for your country." "June 23rd. 

P. S. You will find attached hereto a resolution of the Chamber of Representatives, 
of this day, which maintains Napoleon II in the rights which devolve on him through the 
abdication of his father. 

This resolution was similarly adopted by the Chamber of Peers.

The Original Manuscript of the I>egal Opinion of the Lord Chancellor of Great 
Britain to the Prime Minister of England, contained in a 12pp. Signed Autograph 
Letter, marked "Private," dated "Encombe, Wednesday morning, 1815," addressed 
to the Prime Minister of England. The manuscript is fastened to 3 sunken mats, 
followed by a typewritten copy of the same, and the printed text of the "Appendix," 
inlaid to size. 

Of the Greatest Historical and Napoleonic Importance. 

In this letter, the Lord Chancellor discusses the state of affairs in the most con- 
fidential manner possible, for the private information of the Prime Minister, the 
legal position being a very difficult one, and without any precedent. Eldon is obliged 
to advise that any Law of Nations to the contrary must be abrogated and that 
Napoleon be perpetually imprisoned for the safety and the general peace of the world 
at large. The British Government acting on the opinion given by Lord Eldon in this 
note conveyed the fallen Emperor to St. Helena where he was kept a prisoner till 
his death in 182 1. 

This most important historical manuscript is believed to be unpublished. The 
advice contained therein created a valuable precedent for future guidance, one 
which at rare intervals the world may need to take advantage of. 

The following are a few short extracts, — 

"Lord Bathurst probably will have informed you that after hesitation, I have determined 
to let the late Treaty for the Imprisonment of Buonaparte have the Great Seal appended 
to it. Provided we make out that Maitland received him upon terms, intitling us to 
consider him as a Prisoner of War, I don't think that any objection can be successfully 
urged against that Act. And I have acted upon the Notion that such is the case. I 
don't 7nean to say that I should not have so acted if that could not be made out, because 
whatever difficulty there might be in finding a Principle, short of that, which rests upon 
Necessity for imprisoning him not only until Peace, but after Peace, I am afraid we 
must look at as a case, in which necessity will justify his Imprisonment even after Peace. 

"I incline to an opinion . . . that, if Buonaparte is to be considered as a French 
Subject, his Imprisonment after Peace is rather to be justified upon his Case forming an 
Exception to general rules of the Law of Nations than by any stated Rule of that Law. 
But then, may it not be so justified. Take him to be a French Rebel, we have, as to him, 
got beyond (have we not?) the Law that 'to his Sovereign he standeth or falleth', 'that his 
Sovereign b' not his Sovereign's Allies are to muzzle bf to punish him', — to this his 
Sovereign is incofupetent — but then it is said, if so, that must be, because the French 
Nation would rather have B. their Sovereign than L. 18, and, by the Law of Nations, you 
have no right to prevent that People from choosing their own Government. This I say 
' I admit generally speaking, but we have got beyond the general Truths: we i.e.. Parlia- 
ment, as I conceive, has determined that this is a Case of Exception, because the safety of 
every other Country requires that the French Nation should not be permitted to act upon 
the general Rule — and, if that be so, can it be contrary to the Laiv of Nations, whatever 
are its general Rules, to allow you to interfere against the French Nation having B — e 
as their Sovereign, that you should adopt 'altho' you are, or, if you are not, you will be 
at Peace with France, that measure which, and which alone, you are bona fide convinced 
can make your Interposition effectual, viz, the placing B — e in endurance. If the French 
Nation, by its disposal of Buonaparte, if he is a subject of that Nation, could secure us &f 
our Allies agt that Gentleman's machinations to destroy our Peace, I think it would be 
excessively difficult to justify, according to the Law of Nations, such a treatment of him 
after Peace; but ?nay it not be said that all that has been done, has been done upon the 
self-same principle, which is to be acted upon, if he is so treated viz, a bona fide, rational, 
sober conviction, founded upon strong Argument tendiyig to evince that this Imprison- 
ment is of absolute necessity to the future internal Peace bf welfare of ourselves bf our 
A Hies. . . 

"I assume in all my thoughts that Maitland has not made a Law of Nations for 
Buonaparte' s case by any improvident measure or rather thrown difficulties in our 
way, ..." 

The above, is without doubt, the greatest Legal Opinion of historical importance 
ever given, its effect excelling Cromwell's overthrow of Charles I. and the "Divine 
Right of Kings."

ENGRAVED VIGNETTE FOR COUNT GANTEAUME'S OFFICIAL PAPERS 

[No. 567] 



Third Session, Thursday Afternoon, May 5th 

572. FouCHE (Joseph, Duke of Otranto — Minister of Police under Napoleon 

and Louis XVIII). A Collection of 26 Autograph Letters, of which 3 are 
Signed, — Le Due d'Otrante, iq with his cipher, and 5 unsigned; also, a Let- 
ter Signed, another dictated by him having only the date in his autograph, 
and a Contemporary Manuscript Copy of a "Report on the Situation in 
France . . ." by Fouche, dated August 9, 181 5, 4pp. small folio, dated 
from Paris, Dresden, and Prague, written between March 9, 18 15, and 
October 8, 1817, and varying in length from one to 4 pages, i2mo to 4to. 
Together, 29 pieces. 

Important and Interesting Historical Collection of Original Letters 
by a high official, relating to Napoleon's return from Elba, the Hundred Days, the 
government of Louis XVIII, and the writer's own exile from France, in 1816. With 
the exception of one letter addressed to the Princess de Vaudemont, all the letters 
are written to Madame de Custine, widow of Gen. de Custine. 

This correspondence may be divided into three sections, viz, — 

The first group, comprising the letters (8) written between March 9 and 18th, 
18 1 5, which relates to the return of Napoleon from Elba. Although Fouche accepted 
the appointment of Minister of Police in Napoleon's cabinet, March 20, 18x5, he 
nevertheless looks upon Napoleon's triumphal entry into Paris, his enthusiastic 
reception by the Army, and the people's lack of affection for the Bourbons, with 
disfavor. His only consolation is that military rule can only be of short duration. 

The second group, comprising the letters (12) written between April and Septem- 
ber, 1815, including the Report, relates to political conditions in France just preceding 
Napoleon's final abdication, and during the beginning of Louis XVIII's reign, during 
which period Fouche was also Minister of Police, having been re-appointed to that 
position by the new cabinet under Talleyrand. During this time, he endeavored to 
rally all parties and opinions around Louis XVIII, making the interests of the throne 
the interest of every one. He believed that the fate of Europe hung upon the situa- 
tion in Paris, that there could be no peace in the world, unless France were at peace 
herself. Because of political motives, he resigned his post in September, 18 15, his 
exile following. 

The third group, comprising the letters (9) written between October, 1815, and 
April, 1817, relate to his political opinions in general, his Memoirs, and his banish- 
ment. Here he arraigns the men in the new scheme of affairs who would not listen 
to aught else but the voice of passion, remaining deaf entirely to the voice of reason 
and wisdom. During his residence in Dresden and Prague, whither he went after his 
departure from his native land, he studied the Prussian view-point on political 
questions, and prepared his Memoirs, which he was writing in the form of Caesar's 
Commentaries. In the letters here mentioned, he quotes the words of the Duke of 
Wellington on his conduct as Minister of Police; and also gives an Apology of his 
political attitude towards Louis XVIII, explaining why he served first Napoleon, 
then the King, then Napoleon on his return, and the King again when he came back 
to the throne.

undoubtedly hear with sorrow of the destruction of the Dresden bridge, done by order of 
Marshal, Prince of Eckmiihl, at a time when the absence of all enemy troops rendered 
the necessity of such an act unjustifiable. My Miyiister in Paris will inform you . 
of all I did to oppose such an act of violence in the veiy heart of my Kingdom, and which 
I look upon as unnecessary as it is disastrous for my Capitol. The justice of your 
Majesty . . . will not refuse to show its disapproval of the Marshal's conduct, and 
to remove him frotn all comtnands which would bring him in touch with my troops and 
my territory. 

He closes expressing his loyalty and devotion.

closed in blue cloth folding case, gilt lettering on front cover, surmounted 
with the letter N and crown, with ties. 

In the first letter, 3pp., dated "December 2, 1818," Gourgaud states he is sending 
recipient a copy of his book, written almost at the dictation of the Emperor, in which 
he refutes the false charges made against the French army by its enemies; informs 
Prince Eugene of the letters he has written to the Emperors of Russia and Austria 
and Marie-Louise, to obtain aid for Napoleon, and states that if all does fail, there 
will remain the satisfaction of knowing that a majority of the English people condemn 
the drastic action taken by the English government towards Napoleon. 

In the second letter, 3pp., dated "April 28, 1819," Prince Eugene is informed by 
Gourgaud of the latter's condition, the fact that he is now penniless, and urges 
immediate aid, mentioning that Napoleon had told him upon leaving St. Helena, 
that if he were ever in distress, to apply at once to Prince Eugene. 

In the third letter, 3pp., dated "May 29, 1819," Gourguad expresses his gratitude 
for the aid sent him by Eugene, repeating once more Napoleon's injunction to him 
to have recourse to Eugene whenever he was in trouble.

2," to Alexander, Emperor of Russia. Together, 3 pieces, 4to. Enclosed 
in blue cloth folding case, gilt lettering on front cover surmounted with the 
letter N and crown, with ties. The first letter torn in creases. 

Letters of the Greatest Historical Importance, believed by Frederic 
Masson never to have been received by the personages to whom they were addressed. 

Each of these letters is a report of the unhappy and miserable condition of the 
Emperor, "dying" in St. Helena, as a result of the humiliations and hardships imposed 
on him by those in charge. The writer pleads most earnestly with each correspon- 
dent, particularly with Marie-Louise, that the influence of each be used to al- 
leviate the condition of Napoleon, especially does he urge Marie-Louise and the 
Emperor of Austria to bring all their influence to bear at the Congress of Aix-la- 
Chapelle in behalf of the unhappy Napoleon. 



GouRGAUD (Gaspard, Baron — French general, accompanied Napoleon to 
St. Helena). Three A. L. S., each 3pp. 4to, dated respectively, — ^Francfort,

first letter, and small piece torn out of second leaf of second letter. En- 
closed in blue cloth case, gilt lettering on front cover, surmounted with N 
and a crown, with ties. 

These letters deal intimately with the affairs of the Emperor Napoleon; and the 
letter from Paris encloses the key to a complicated cipher by means of which secret 
communications might be sent.

A 2-page manuscript memorandum, written in the book, states that these volumes 
although they reached the Island of St. Helena, were never forwarded to the Em- 
peror, the Governor Sir Hudson Lowe detaining them on political grounds. This was 
keenly felt by Napoleon, and his dissatisfaction is mentioned by O'Meara and other 
historians. The question was raised by Lord Holland in the House of Lords and a 
denial was given on the part of Sir Hudson Lowe, but at the latter's death in 1843, his 
library was sold, and these two volumes were included; they were purchased by 
Col. Gurwood, the Editor of the "Wellington Dispatches," who presented the work 
to Mr. Beaufoy.

XVIII, from April to December, 1814). D. S., ip. small folio, War Depart- 
ment, Paris, April 18, 1 8 14. To the General, Commanding in the Isle of 
Elba (Gen. Dalesme). 

Order from the Minister of War for the evacuation of the Isle of Elba by the troops 
in garrison there, which troops, as well as material belonging to France, are to be 
sent to Alexandria, as soon as the Isle is given over to Napoleon; after which Gen. 
Dalesme is to send a report of the execution of the present order, to the Minister 
of War. 

C.) Dalesme (General — Governor of the Isle of Elba). Contemporary 
Official Manuscript Copy of Government Records relating mainly to the 
Military Magazines and Stores on the Isle of Elba, just previous to its 
Surrender to Napoleon, copied from Letters written by Governor Dalesme 
to various subordinate officers, between April 22, and May 23, 1814. Writ- 
ten in ink on ii}4 folio pages, in two different hands, including two pas- 
sages of 1 1 and 4 lines respectively, written by Gov. Dalesme, and Signed, — 
D. Stitched. 

These copies are made from letters and instructions sent by the Governor of the Isle 
of Elba, to Mr. Gottman, "Quarter-Master" at Longone; To Mr. Pinche, naval 
commander at Porto Ferrajo; Mr. Delacoudray, Captain of a Vessel; the Sub-Prefect; 
Mr. Gabrielle commanding the Fort at Palmajola; Mr. Maison, War Commissary; 
Mr. Pisani, commanding the District of Campo; the Minister of War in Italy; and 
General Drouot, who took possession of the Island in the name of Napoleon. 

The letters and instructions announce the change of Government in France, 
ordering that the white flag be hoisted; that the soldiers be given their choice of 
remaining at their post in Elba or of returning to France; that the military stores 
and magazines distribute only certain quantities of their material to the soldiers as 
per instructions received; that no armed vessel of a foreign power be allowed to 
land at any port for the present; that peace be maintained in every part of the 
Island; . . . and that the Island is to be surrendered to General Drouot, with 
all its magazines and stores, who is taking possession of the same in the name of the 
Emperor.

Tear in second leaf mended. 

Very Curious Letter, in which the Commandant General of Corsica informs the 
Governor of Elba of the tyrant's(Napoleon's)fall and abdication, and the establishment 
of the new government in France, urges him to surrender the Isle of Elba at once to the 
new government, and pledge his allegiance to it. He declares that Corsica and 
Capria have just thrown off the yoke of the tyrant, and there remains but Elba to 
do the same. He suggests that the Isle of Elba be delivered to him. Gen. Montresor, 
with all its forts and batteries, and offers him passage to any port of France. 

This letter is evidently not an official act on the part of the new government, the 
writer acting on his own suggestion and authority. When Napoleon landed at Elba, 
on May 4, Gen. Drouot presented to Gen. Dalesme the official papers made out by 
the new government, by which Napoleon took possession of Elba as his property.

reads in part (in translation), as follows, — ■ 

The vicissitudes of human affairs have brought into the midst of you the Emperor 
Napoleon, and by his choice he is given to you as your Sovereign. Before entering inside 
your walls your new and august monarch has addressed to me the following words, which 
I hasten to make known to you as they are the guarantee of your future happiness, — 

"Gejieral, I have sacrificed my rights to the interests of the country, and have reserved 
for myself the sovereignty and property of the Island of Elba, to which all the powers have 
consented. Make kttown this new state of affairs to the inhabitants, and the choice I 
have made of their island for my residence, on account of the mildness of their maimers 
and of their climate. Tell them that they will be the object of my most active concern."

Letters by Koutouzof, written in French, are rare. The above one, evidently 
addressed to a lady, in which great concern over her health is expressed, is a curious 
combination of mispelled French and Russian characters.

Jour," Signed, ip. folio, Chollet, June 27, 18 15. Signed as Commander-

The above bulletin was issued five days after Napoleon's final abdication. In it, 
the General congratulates his men upon having brought to an end the war in Vendee, 
thanks to their discipline, their humanity, and courage. He thanks them in the 
name of France; and announces to them the defeat of the Northern Armies. He 
says in part (in translation), — The genius of the Emperor together with the finest laid- 
■plans could not resist the concourse of circumstances which human wisdom could not 
foresee. These defeats pain us but do not make us despair; the holy cause of Country 
and freedom cannot fail.

656. Lannes (Jean, Duke of Montebello, — ^one of the most celebrated French 

Marshals under Napoleon). A. L. S., 2pp. folio, Milan, le 27 Thermidor, 
5eme Annee (Aug. 16, 1797). To Citizen Pouholn, in the Dept. of Gers. 
Written on official paper of Army of Italy. 

Important Letter, Entirely in the Autograph of This Famous Marshal, 
written during, and relating to, the Campaign in Italy, two months before the 
Treaty of Campo Formio was signed, by which Austria acknowledged the inde- 
pendence of the new Cisalpine Republic. Exceedingly Rare. 

The translation of this very interesting letter reads in part as follows, — 

/ see with pain thai the good friends of the Republic let thetnselves be intimidated by a 

handful of brigands, at a time when Liberty is about to triumph more strongly than ever; 

they have probably forgotten that there are 300,000 republicans in the armies ready to 

march to crush these miserable creatures who till now only inspired us with pity, but 

hereafter, no more pity for these blackguards. The army has sworn war to the 

death in the addresses just sent to the governjnent, and swears also that if the government 

will not take measures after what they have learned . . . then the army will divide itself, 

and will find no more difficulty in marching to Paris, than it found in marching to Vienna. 

I repeat again no mercy will be shown. If our good countrym,en knew the morale 

of our army, they would understand that our Country is not in danger . . . yes, gather 

together every day and take courage, and be assured that we are ready to die for you 

. we do not fear for the Republic, we know our strength.

marshals under Napoleon). L. S., with a 2-line autograph inscription, ip.

Any autograph of Lannes is exceedingly rare. The present is a request to be reim- 
bursed for his traveling expenses for the journey from Tilsit to Paris, undertaken at 
the bidding of the Major-General of the Grand Army. 

658. Lannes (Jean, Duke of Montebello — one of the most celebrated French 

marshals under Napoleon). L. S., 2>^pp. 4to, Headquarters at the Ecluses, 
February 12, 1809. To the Duke of Abrantes (Gen. A. Junot). 

Interesting letter written during the siege of Saragossa (Spain). Marshal Lannes 
as commander-in-chief of the French forces, and General Palafox leading the Spanish 
forces, besieged Saragossa, which after a heroic resistance was finally taken by the 
French in that same month. 

The letter reads in part (in translation), — Adjutant-Commander Fabre informs me 
that strong reenforcements have left this place (Ste. Ge) for Maquinenza where they are 
to join the troops commanded by the brothers Palaphox. 

I leave to-tnorrow with part of the fifth corps to meet the enemy. . . I am taking 
with 7ne the regiment of cuirassiers. . . I beg of you, during my absence, to see 
that the works I instructed to have carried out, under Gen. Gazan, are proceeded with as 
rapidly as possible, so that when I return everything may be ready for the attack of the 
faubourg.

Acknowledges receipt of a book sent him by Col. Warre, which he has had read 
to him, and comments on the same as follows (translation), — First of all, I wished 
to point out any inaccuracies concerning inyself, as you requested me to . . . but I 
soon discovered that I would have to renounce doing this. There would have been so 
many things to correct, others to clarify, and still others to he crossed out as foreign to my 
recollection, that ijistead of a text book, you would have had a commentary on the same. 

Besides, those who remained at Longwood are the worst jtidges as to the merits of such 
a work. We were all so familiar with these things, that we are astonished that everyone 
does not know what is read in a written work, which we always consider lifeless and 
colorless. The only impression after reading the hook which remains, . . .is that 
there is danger in our talking of these events, and that we ought to keep silence; for what 
is recorded frotn conversations . . . tnay he tnisundertsood, wrongly translated, 
mutilated . . . and then the person who spoke is cited as an unquestionable authority .

Important Letter of Rare Interest, relating to conditions existing in the

tors. After narrating the orders he, Lefebvre, had received, to set out at once for the 
Army stationed on the western coast, he continues thus (in translation), — Yesterday, 
on leaving the carriage, I called on Gen. Hatry, and with him, went to see Director Barras, 
where we met Generals Hoche and Debelle, the ministers, several foreign ambassadors, 
and representatives of the people; I told them just what I thought of their conduct, of the 
state of the army, and of our administrations; I was warmly welcomed, and up till the 
present, I have seen nothing to justify the public rumors heard regarding their luxurious 
living and display; I did not conceal from them either how much our brave army would 
be losing when it loses you; they all expressed great regret over your resignation, and 
urged me, several times, to use all my influence that you might remain at your post. 
All that I could tell you of public opinion would give you but a very faint idea of the 
rottenness of the aristocracy, and the terrible egoism, so evident in France; I do not know 
what will be the final outcome, but I do fear it will be disastrous to the Republic.

an 3eme (July 26, 1795). To General Dumas. On official paper, with 
vignette. 

Long and interesting letter in the course of which he states that although the 
Jacobins might have gained strength as a result of the rash opinions of some of the 
new deputies, still this did not warrant the Directory in making more blunders. 
Agrees with Dumas that the dismissal of the Minister and the forward movements 
of the troops will not cause any great trouble, and that as long as there is party 
dissension, there can be no domestic peace, and without the latter, there can be no 
adjustment of the financial situation and nothing will work in order. Expresses his 
satisfaction with the army as a whole, which, with a few exceptions, never com- 
plains although the men have been without pay for several months, and have suf- 
fered hardships in consequence. Speaks of the punishment meted out to the rebellious 
soldiers, which punishment produced a salutary effect on all the men. 

Mention of the Italian campaign is made, regarding which Moreau says he does 
not like to see their northern and eastern frontiers sacrificed for that of the Italian 
republic where strife will break out as soon as the French troops quit. He has sent 
Desaix to Italy to find out just what is going on there. Informs his friend that Bona- 
parte has been charged with seeing that the sum levied on Bavaria is paid. 

Comments on a treaty entered upon with the English and Austrians, in which he 
thinks Gen. Dumas has been used as a tool, since the Emperor is taking so long to 
come to terms, and the French have no guarantees, there is evidently an attmpet to 
try to dislodge the French force from the Rhine. He further comments on the up- 
rising in Hungary due to the Emperor's fear lest the Turks oppose his attempts to 
take Dalmatia, i. e., the Italian part, and to obstacles put forth by Russia and 
Prussia relative to the treaty, whatever its terms, to be signed, and ends with his 
regret that the general's brother had left them, and informing him that they have 
been starving ever since his departure.

graphic frontispiece. Royal 4to, 4pp. stitched, uncut, leaves foxed, plate 
repaired in margin. No place [1821] 

History informs us that Napoleon died of cancer of the stomach. In this work, 
the author attempts to prove it was impossible for him to die of this dread disease, 
having been ill but forty days. Without doubt, history will tell us what an Italian 
priest was doing at St. Helena. Napoleon died a despot's death, the result of inor- 
dinate ambition, which he predicts will be the cancer that will cause the death of his 
son. Napoleon II. 

The frontispiece is a curious lithograph showing Napoleon's heir, the young King 
of Rome, asleep on his couch, pursued by the ghost of his father pointing out the fate 
in store for him, which is to be the same as that shared by his father. In the upper 
corner of the lithograph is a small scene representing three male figures gaining on 
a fallen figure, representing the despotism which Napoleon exercised over his sub- 
jects, and which despotism caused his end.

Citizen Durtuby to send him 3 drivers for employment at the Arsenal at Marseilles; 
6. An order to send the cannon stationed at Avignon to Marseilles, destined for the 
army at Toulon. 

In August, 1793, Toulon was delivered to the English by the royalists. In Decem- 
ber, of the same year, the French took it, and the part played by Bonaparte at this 
siege as commander of the Artillery first raised him into prominence. 

[See Illustration] 

772. Napoleon I. Autograph Endorsement of two words, — Certifie vrai, signed, —

tive Department of the Directory, ip., folio, Paris, le 18 nivose, An V 
(Jan. 7, 1797). With a 4-line recommendation in margin in Napoleon's 
autograph, signed, — Bonaparte (as Commander-in-Chief of the Army in 
Italy). 

Manuscripts OF Bon.aparte As Commander-in-Chief Are Exceedingly Scarce. 

In the margin of the letter addressed to the Directory by Gen. Dupont-Chau- 
mont, asking to be taken into active service again. Napoleon has written and signed 
a 4-line recommendation, the translation of which is, Recommended to the Executive 
Directory. This officer-general served under me, with zeal, in the Army of the Interior. 

775. Napoleon I. D. S., ip., folio, Paris, le 11 Ventose, I'an huit (March i,

Bodoni, an eminent Italian printer and scholar, urges Napoleon to invite him to 
publish an edition of Homer in several languages. Napoleon's signature to the 
note is probably his manner of granting Bodoni's request.

783. Napoleon I. A. N. S., 3 lines. Entirely in the Autograph of Napoleon, 

the translation of which is, — I approve of the proposals made to take steps 
to levy the contribution of 12 millions on the Hessians. Send armed men at 
once. They are sorely needed. Signed, — -N (as Emperor). This marginal 
note is his answer to the letter written to him by General Lagrange, and 
written in upper margin of the same, 2pp. folio [Berlin, November 24, 1806.] 
On water-marked paper. 

General Joseph Lagrange, at the time of the above letter, had been made Gov- 
ernor of Hesse-Cassel, and had received instructions from Napoleon relative to the 
destruction of the forts of Marburg and Hanau, and had been ordered to have all 
ammunition captured sent to Mayence, to disarm the country completely, to banish 
the ruling house of Hesse from the country, and to raise troops from among the 
conquered inhabitants, but to be fair in his dealings with them. (See Correspondance 
de Napoleon ler, Vol. 13, from page 479 on). 

In the above letter, Lagrange reports that the Emperor's orders have been car- 
ried out, that he has disarmed the Duchy of Hesse, that the ammunition taken has 
been sent on to Mayence, and that which could not be of service destroyed. He 
mentions that the Elector was in flight, and had made attempts to remove the 
treasury from the country before the enemy took it. He also suggests that the six 
millions levied upon the Hessians be made payable by the Elector, as the latter had 
12,000,000 capital invested in Hesse, and not by the inhabitants who were very 
poor. He also mentions that the delay will be necessary in the raising of troops 
from among the Hessians, as the officers had been sent to Luxembourg, according 
to orders received, and that it would take a few days before they returned. 

784. Napoleon I. Letter addressed to Napoleon by Denon, 2pp. folio, Paris, 

January 7, 1807. With autograph signature of Napoleon in margin, — N 
(as Emperor). 

Dominique V. Denon, eminent French artist and author, accompanied Napoleon 
in his campaign to Egypt, making drawings of the monuments and other objects of 
interest in that country. He accompanied Napoleon in his other campaigns, making 
drawings even in the midst of battles. In 1802, he was appointed Director-General 
of Museums. In the above letter, signed by Denon, he states the necessary steps 
to be taken to obtain valuable statuary from the Prince of Spada in Italy. The 
marginal note, written by Napoleon's secretary, and signed by the Emperor, author- 
izes Denon to take whatever steps he deems necessary for acquiring the desired 
art works. 

785. Napoleon L L. S., ip., 4to, Frankenstein, April 11, 1807. To M. de Tu- 

renne. Signed in Napoleon's autograph, — -N (as Emperor). 

Written during the Russian campaign, giving orders to M. de Turenne to pro- 
cede to Dantzig and deliver a letter to Marshal Lefebvre, which letter contained 
instructions to be followed in the Siege of Dantzig; and then for Turenne to con- 
tinue on to Kolberg to deliver another letter to General Loison, which letter related 
to re-enforcements being sent to the General to aid in capturing Kolberg. 

The contents of the letters delivered by Turenne according to instructions given 
him may be found in Correspondance de Napoleon ler. Vol. 15, pp. 54-55.

787. Napoleon I. Request addressed to Napoleon by the Minister of War, Cte. 

d'Hunebourg, ip. folio, Department of War, October 25, 1809. With a 
six-line marginal note, dated Fontainebleau, Oct. 31, 1809, signed, — ^A'^ 
(as Emperor). 

A request for the release of an Austrian prisoner of war, Lieut, de Bonninghausen, 
made by the Cte. d'Hunebourg, in the name of the King of Holland (Napoleon's 
brother Louis). With a 6-line Marginal Note Autographed and Signed by 
Napoleon, to the effect that a Hollander who bears arms against his country de- 
serves to be punished. 

788. Napoleon I. Document annotated 43 times in the Autograph of Napoleon, 

as Emperor. 2pp. folio, written after 1809. Unsigned. 

Evidently a leaf extracted from a manuscript work on fortifications, this being 
leaf No. 36. Mention is made of the various forts constructed along the various 
frontiers of the French Empire, extending from the North of Holland to the South 
of France. Napoleon has made autograph annotations in the form of marginal 
notes or corrections in the manuscript itself, the whole amounting to 43 words. 

Any document having corrections in Napoleon's handwriting is exceedingly rare. 

789. Napoleon I. A. L. S., by Duroc, Duke of Friuli, ip. folio, St. Cloud, July 

18, 1810. To Napoleon, signed by him, — -N (as Emperor). 

Letter by Duroc, a favorite officer of the camp and court of Napoleon, suggesting 
some Gobelin tapestries and Sevres porcelains which Napoleon wished to present 
as gifts to his youngest brother Jerome, King of Westphalia. A note in another 
hand, signed by Napoleon, expresses approval. 

The letter is accompanied by 2 folio leaves, each bearing the description of some 
tapestries and porcelains with the prices of each. 

An interesting letter in connection with Napoleon's generosity to his brother. 

790. Napoleon I. Autograph Manuscript of 34 lines, covering half-a-page on 

second leaf of letter. Entirely in Napoleon's Autograph, crossed out 
by him, and rewritten, by his order, by Meneval, his secretary, with the 
date "Paris, December 5, 181 1," and with his own Signature N as his 
approval of the said copy, on upper margin of first leaf of a letter written 
and signed by the Duke of Pasquier, Prefect of Police, the day previous, and 
addressed to Count Montalivet, Minister of the Interior. The whole on 
2>^pp. folio, Paris, December 4 and 5, 1811. 

Rare Document Entirely in Napoleon's Handwriting of which the following 
is a translation, — Pay no heed to these proposals. Have the Police find out who the 
grain dealers are for foreign markets, and have them requisitioned and ordered to supply

flour to be stored in the ware-houses. See that a plentiful supply is put on the markets 
from the storage houses. Maintain the price at 73 francs. Have one or two articles 
appear in the Paris 'newspaper which, while not directly stating that a supply of wheat 
is on the ivay here from Hamburg and Francfort, will give the public that impression, 
mentioning some accidents which have happened, on the way. 

The above is Napoleon's instructions relating to the problem of the steadily in- 
creasing price of flour on the market and the limited supply put forth by the dealers, 
which problem Pasquier has submitted in the above letter, to the Minister of the 
Interior, requesting that some remedy be forthcoming to relieve the desperate situa- 
tion, his letter being turned over by them to the Emperor for him to settle, and which 
resulted in the above orders being given by Napoleon to the Prefect of Police. 



791. Napoleon I. D. S., ip., large folio, Imperial Headquarters at Witepsk, 
August 7, 1812. Signed, — Napl (as Emperor). Paper marked with

to set out for Sardinia for a cargo of merchandise. Signed by the Emperor, and 
countersigned by Cte. de Susse, Minister of Commerce; Decres, Minister of the 
Navy; Cte. Dam, Minister of State; and the Chief Customs Officer. 

Interesting as being signed by Napoleon at Witepsk during the Russian campaign. 



792. Napoleon I. A Decree from the Franciscan Provincial, 3pp. folio, Bastia, 
April 6, 1813. To Pierre Seroni. With a 5-line marginal note written by 
Napoleon's secretary, and signed by Napoleon, — -N (as Emperor). 

A translation from the Latin to French of a decree from Brother Joseph Marie de 
Bonis (styled) Provincial of the Franciscan Order, appointing Rev. Pierre Seroni, 
to take charge of the "Third Order." With marginal note by Napoleon's secretary,

what it all means. Note dated, Naumberg, April 30, 1813.

headed, — Fontainebleau le 20 avril a 11 heures >^ du matin. Adieux de I'Emper- 
eur Napoleon a la vieille garde, ip. 4to, written in ink, and unsigned. 

Very Rare Contemporary Copy, Probably Made by Some One Near to 
Napoleon Himself, of Napoleon's Farewell Address to His "Old Guard," 
JUST before His Departure for Elba. 

The address, made April 20, 1814, after the occupation of Paris by the Allies, 
and Napoleon's enforced abdication in favor of Louis XVI H, begins (in translation), 
— Officers, u7tder-off^cers and soldiers of the old guard, I bid you farewell! For 20 years 
I have been satisfied with you, I have always found you following the road of honor 
and glory. . . Be faithful to the new King which France has chosen; never abandon 
this dear country too long unhappy. . . [A marginal note at this point, in the 
same hand as the manuscript, reads, — ] Here the Emperor burst into a torrent of tears. 
[Another note at foot states, that the address was made to the few members of the 
old guard who were at Fontainebleau at the time.] 

According to a note at foot this address was sent by Gen. Friant, French general 
under Napoleon, commander of the Grenadiers of the Imperial Guard, who was 
near the Emperor when he addressed these words to a handful of the Old Guard who were 
at Fontainebleau. 

794. Napoleon I. Autograph Endorsement Signed, on letter, one page folio, 

Paris, May 7, 1815. Endorsed and Signed by Napoleon, — approuve parts le

Emperor, askmg him to confirm instructions for an outlay of money to be used for 
the Isle of Elba.

Figures in Napoleon's Handwriting on 7pp. (see pp.14 to 20, inclusive). 
Small folio, half roan. Enclosed in morocco slip-case, gilt lettering on back. 

Unique Item. Each pencil annotation by Napoleon is inscribed, — "Ecriture et 
chiffre de la Main de I'Empereur Napoleon a Vile de St. Helene," and signed "Pierron, 
son maitre d'hotel a St. Helene." 

The first entry in the book is dated "January, 1818," and the last "May 5, 1821," 
the day on which Napoleon died. It was kept by Pierron, his head-cook, who fol- 
lowed him to St. Helena. From January 1819, Napoleon himself supervised the 
accounts of the day, making notes when he deemed the same necessary. Pierron 
would use the English monetary system in making out his accounts, and Napoleon 
would change these amounts into French values in a marginal note. Most of the 
pages bear the signature "M" or "P." 

After the death of Napoleon, Pierron put away the book carefully, taking care to 
certify the authentication of every note and figure made by the Emperor. Later, 
the book found its way into the collection of P. Dablin, whose bookplate is here 
inserted, and was sold in Paris at public auction after Dablin's death.

placed in such a plight. I beg of you, see that he is reinstated as soon as possible.

marriage (to Marie Louise) and the birth of his son. King of Rome. Since these

genius of the Emperor. He comments on various statements made in the work, 
clearing away some points left in doubt, and shedding light on facts misinterpreted 
by the writer. Relating to his own autobiographic "Memoirs," published in 1828, he 
states that the facts mentioned therein were true, since he had been a witness to them, 
and where a fact had been reported to him, he had clearly stated it as such. 

Among the points of discussion which he raises, are allusions to a document which 
had been removed from Talleyrand's portfolio by a certain individual who had 
communicated the contents of it to some one else, the latter betraying the information 
to the English authorities. The person who had obtained the document had confessed 
the whole affair to Savary himself. Then follows mention of the punishment meted 
to the culprits with comments thereon, referring incidentally to Mr. Pitt in connection 
with the affair. 

Again, the writer having stated that he, Savary, often mingled erroneous with 
truthful statements, he mentions the fact of his intimate knowledge relative to 
statements he had made in his own "Memoirs." Further on, he mentions the true 
motive for sending of certain republican officers on the expedition of St. Domingo, 
with particular reference to the parts played by D'Aure, Mr. Benesech, and Gen. 
Dugast, relative to the same.

terrible example might be made of them; also, gives him instructions relative to the

celebrated French diplomatist: Grand Chamberlain from 1804 to 1809). 
L. S., 4pp. Paris, September 23, 1806. To M. Bignon, at Cassel. 

Long and important letter relative to Napoleon's intended invasion of German 
territory. 

The writer acknowledges receipt of letter from Mr. Louis Pierre E. Bignon (emi- 
nent French statesman and historian) which he had given to the Emperor, and 
of the latter's surprise at the brief report rendered on the movements of the Prussian 
troops in Hesse-Cassel and the surrounding territory, and on the Elector's plans. 
Could he be ignorant of such an important move or are the generals' reports false? 
A rumor says that the roads of Hesse are filled with soldiers returning from furloughs. 

Requests that the recipient send a report twice a week, and later, a daily one, as 
His Majesty wishes to have the minutest details on any movement made by the troops 
at Gottingen, Osnabruck, and adjacent countries, and the make-up of the troops 
under the various generals. Everything going on at Magdebourg, Hall and Berlin 
is to be reported. He suggests that frequent attendance at couit may help him to 
obtain valuable information as to the regiments under German command, their 
destinations, force and the like. Then follows many questions on the state of the 
Prussian army. 

Informs the recipient that the Emperor is to be at Mayence on the 28th, that he is 
to report to his Majesty with all the necessary information, and that the true reason 
for his visit is to be concealed. 

879. Tallien (Jeanne Marie Ignace Therese de Cabarrus — noted French

to him.

foot-note on page 2 relates the incidents of the inauguration of the second statue in 
1833, so that the volume was published after July of that year.

Inserted is a 3-page Signed Autograph Letter by Queen Hortense, in French, Rome, 
January 9, 1831. To "My dear brother [Prince Eugene de Beauharnais]." Interesting 
letter in which Hortense mentions that the account of events in Italy (the insurrec- 
tionary movement going on in Italy at that moment) had been greatly magnified 
abroad, and that nothing more serious than a momentary panic had really taken 

place; her son's hasty and sudden departure also urges her brother 

to attend to the matter of their claims before the French government while the 
royalist party, under Louis Philippe, seem in the mood to consider the same.

Fourth Session, Thursday Evening, May 5th 

895. Waterloo. Derniere Campagne de Napoleon Bonaparte. 18 15. Original 

Manuscript, in French, giving an account of Napoleon's movements 
from June 11, 1815, when he left the Elysee, to his return there, June 21, 
after the defeat at Waterloo. Written in ink on 6 folio pages, with a type- 
written English translation. Printed title-page inserted. Folio, red 
crushed French levant morocco, gilt lettered, gilt top, by birdsall. Leaves 
of manuscript soiled and frayed at edges. 18 15 

This Manuscript came from the Sir Thomas Phillips' Sale, where it was sold in a 
lot of loose manuscripts. Sir Thomas Phillips bought it from Toovej' about 30 or 
40 years before, i.e., about i860. The narrative, which is certified as true by an 
Equerry of the Emperor, apparently is the work of some one attached to Napoleon's 
person during the Waterloo Campaign. Some of the details concerning Napoleon's 
movements are interesting and it is apparent that the writer, who in one or two 
places uses the word "we" in describing the Emperor's flight from the field, was 
actually with him. The spelling and grammar are often incorrect. — Note preceding 
the English translation.

correspondent. He discusses the case of Lord Portarlington, who on the morning 
on which was fought the Battle of Waterloo, was found missing fiom the command 
of his regiment. The writer privately advises him to retire from the service, as a 
court-martial always brings out circumstances which might as well not be published. 

Accompanying the above is a printed genealogical outline of the family; and also, 
a typewritten biographical account of Lord Portarlington. 

897. Wellington (Arthur Wellesley, Duke of — celebrated British general to

Wellington writes in part, — "I enclose a letter from a Gentleman who appears to be 
quite mad and who states that he resides in the neighbourhood of Reading. . . I 
take the liberty of . . . suggesting that you acquaint this Gentleman's friends with 
the state of mind in which he appears to be."
