In part (translated): “The report of the Assistant to Adjutant General Ney had surprised and worried me. Your letter of the 17th [August 4th] reassures me…I decided to attempt the passage. I am able, I'm waiting for the artillery and the moment when the bridge of Holland will occur. Because I want it to be the same day as you. If the Rhine does not get lower soon…Finally it is the case to say: 'the more there are the more we will kill.’” In fine condition, with scattered creases and a few small edge tears. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
