Letter to the Minister of War, in part (translated): “I ask you…to give the orders so that fortifications at Fulliers and Noulou will begin. Would it be possible to occupy it as yet? Inform me of the opinion of the Genie Corp. On the work necessary to put these two places in the best possible state of defence. My intention is that funds be made available to the Genie for the work on these two places. Write to General Moncey and to the Government of Cisalpine to let them know of the importance I attach to the fortifications…it is necessary that all of the Generals commanding in Italy and the General of the Genie send you the details of what has been done…You will find attached a treaty that must be executed with the utmost exactitude.” Upper left corner features a brief annotation in the hand of Louis Alexandre Berthier. In fine condition.
