Following his devastating first-ever defeat, Napoleon reassigns “the men whose wounds or infirmities have made them unfit for military service”

LS in French, signed “Np,” one page, 7.25 x 9, November 14, 1813. Letter to the Duc de Feltre. In part (translated): “Give orders to General Caffarelli, my aide-de-camp, to review my guard and to reassign the men whose wounds or infirmities have made them unfit for military service. He will comply with what is prescribed by the regulations on this subject.” In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds, and small tack holes to corners. Accompanied by a contemporary hand-colored etching of Napoleon. This letter comes shortly after Napoleon's return to France after the decisive defeat in the Battle of Leipzig in October 1813, when he retreated to his palace at Saint-Cloud while leaving his aide-de-camp, Marie-Francois Auguste de Caffarelli du Falga, in charge of the troops remaining in Paris. An exceptional letter with desirable military content, dating to one of the most significant periods of Napoleon’s reign. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
