Letter to French geographer and cartographer Jean-Denis Barbie, in part (translated): "Mr. Cuvier has the honor of writing to Barbie of the Bocage, and to recommend to him Rousseau, an anatomical assistant in the garden of the king, who wishes to undergo the bachelor's exam. He is well on his way…and will do well to make a doctor in surgery. In advance I beg my colleague the penance of this indulgence."
