LANNES Jean (1769-1809) maréchal d'Empire
L.A.S. "Lannes", Potsdam October 25, 1806, to HIS WIFE (née Louise Guéhenneuc); 2 pages in-4, address with red wax stamp remnants.
On the Prussian campaign and her entry into Postdam with Napoleon.
"I entered today with His imperious majesty in Posdam at the head of my army corps; I have a cavalry regiment in
Berlin, I hope my dear friend that this will soon give us peace and that soon I will be near you; I do not need to tell you my dear Louise, how much I am looking forward to kissing you and our little children. I must confess, my dear friend, that this is a very extraordinary campaign. It must also be said that our Emperor is a great man, if you saw him, he's a great samuzer; you can't imagine how much he is admired in all this country; it's today the 24th, not even a month ago that we left Paris, in truth my dear friend, it seems like a dream, this great Prussian army that wanted to come to Paris, has disappeared".
