Manuscript Document Signed ("Louis Bonaparte"), rejecting a request by Inspecteur Norel of Chambéry to be returned to active duty, and with a short Autograph addition (seven words) confirming that Bonaparte had submitted Norel's name for the Légion d'honneur
Paris, 1804. Signed with a flourish in pen and ink on a manuscript document, with brief addition in Louis Bonaparte's hand. 4to. Old fold, faint marginal soiling, one trace of old paper clip. Fine. Signed with a flourish in pen and ink on a manuscript document, with brief addition in Louis Bonaparte's hand. 4to. Excellent autograph of Louis Bonaparte (1778-1846), brother of Napoleon I, named by him King of Holland in 1806, and the father of Napoleon III. This document informs the recipient that the Emperor has already filled a position and that, accordingly, his request to return to active dury is declined. The blow is sweetened by acknowledging that a request for admission to the Légion d'honneur would be accepted, with a note in Louis Bonaparte's hand "auquel j'a déjà fait la demande".
