Manuscript DS in French, signed “Accepte, Bonaparte,” one page, 7.25 x 9.25, no date. Recommendation for Francois Tripeau, a native of the town of Amiens, who had served in the Army from 1783 to 1791, at which time he had joined the battalion of foot police. As this group had now been disbanded, Tripeau asks for permission to join the Legion of Police, citing his record well-educated, being of an honest family, and having a certificate of excellent conduct. Napoleon approves the request at the conclusion. In fine condition, with trivial loss to the lower left corner, easily matted out. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
