OF NAPOLEONIC INTEREST. 164 FOUCHE (Joseph, Duke of Otranto, 1763-1820). French

Statesman, helped to depose Robespierre. A.L.S.
8th August, (1810).

An exceedingly fine and most interesting letter, written after Fouché's banishment from Paris, probably addressed to the Empress Marie Louise, entreating her to intercede with the Emperor on his behalf, to allow him to be re-united to his wife and family, also complaining bitterly of his exile.

Your Highness's letter has brought peace into my soul, which for three months has been so cruelly agitated.

Since my departure from Paris I have been abandoned by all the world. Letters from my wife come but rarely ; for ten days I have received no letter from my wife or my children. I was in despair, and a friend has added the final blow in announcing that my wife fell unconscious on receiving news of my arrest.

I embarked for Naples with the idea of retiring with my family to the United States, but I was scarcely on the sea when my good sense restored me to reason, and the sight of English frigates decided me to return to Florence,

Ah, Madame! I have never asked any favour of the Emperor, but I ask one to-day, through you, at the time of his fête. That His Majesty deign to forget the wrongs with which he reproaches me and permit me to be with my wife and children wherever it may be ; I should be profoundly grateful.

Etc.
