Description
Lucien Bonaparte - Lettre Autographe Signée à Maitre Patorni [sur ses mémoires] - 1840
History, Manuscripts - Quantity: 1 - Autograph letter signed (ALS)

Lucien BONAPARTE, brother of Napoleon, committed politician, is republican above all.
he took a decisive part in the coup d'état of 18 Brumaire which allowed Bonaparte to establish the Consulate, but his republican ideas distanced him from his brother.

Exiled in the papal principality he was made Prince of Canino by the Pope in 1814.

He died a month after writing this letter in June 1840.

He refers to a publication undertaken by lawyer Patorni,
publication that he considers well done but unwelcome:
(It is certainly a publication on his memoirs, the first volume of which had appeared in 1836 and which ended with "Vive la République!", death prevented him from completing the second volume).
It is May 20, 1840 and on May 12 the Chamber of Deputies in France voted, to unanimous applause, the return of the Emperor's Ashes to the land of France. The event is therefore major for history.

Canino, 20 May 1840 ..

« ..mon cher Patorni.. ..le mémoire est bien fait et sauf quelques phrases peu convenables je n'ai qu'à l'approuver. Vous avez sans doute eu de bons motifs pour cette publication et le résultat néanmoins confirmera ou dissipera CE MECONTENTEMENT QUE ME DONNE cette publication EN CE MOMENT...».

Lucien Bonaparte signs; " L. PRINCE OF CANINO "
