Octavo, paperback, two handwritten letters, unsigned:
- 1 two-sided leaf, many words crossed out, 19 February 1807.
-1 two-sided leaf, 6 September 1807.
Many words are not necessary to note that an assignment of political responsibilities hardly spares the respect of civil servants and citizens. These two letters mention M. Delestre, for whom the responsibility of prefect is required.
The first draft letter, unsigned, (19 February 1807) was written on piece of paper with watermarked letterhead of the Legion of Honour “"Napoléon empereur des français, roi d'Italie” with an effigy of the Emperor’s profile.
The author of the recommendation to Napoleon for Delestre’s candidacy does not only make an account of the services rendered during his previous prefectures but also of his morality: “His conduct marks him as a perfect man; he is married, has six children and Madame Delestre has a character and spirit that are quite suitable for helping a prefect reconcile all of the votes.”
The second letter, unsigned, (9 September 1807) mentions the possibility of placing Delestre in Gottingen, "a land of scholars, of stubborn people, but English to such an extent that it is necessary to prepare for them a firm Frenchman who has the tradition of the way in which one subjugates those whom one cannot bring back."
Despite these recommendations, Delestre was no longer prefect but continued his career until the Restoration.
