NAPOLÉON Ier (1769-1821) Empereur.
L.A. (3 lines), [December 14, 1809], to his sister Princess PAULINE; quarter page in-4, autograph address on the back "a la princesse Pauline" (small tear by breaking the seal without touching the text, very well restored). Short note to his sister, about his mistress Christine de Mathis. It was Pauline who, at the end of 1809, pushed into the arms of her brother, then immersed in the difficulties of his divorce with Josephine, his lady-in-waiting Christine de MATHIS (1784-1841), "a little blonde, rather fat" of Piedmontese origin, who kept Napoleon busy until the arrival of Marie-Louise. Pauline served as a matchmaker between the lovers]. "Little sister, I'm sending you a letter as you wanted. I am comfortable to see you tonight and I will go to Trianon tomorrow evening. I have a parade tomorrow at noon". General Correspondence, t. IX, n° 22607.
