From the dordogne he fulfilled his functions with the greatest zeal by complying with the laws decreed by the National Assembly up to the time when all kinds of persecutions forced him to flee in order to escape the danger which threatened him; On the list of emigrants, he can not, in his old age, have the consolation of seeing his wife and children, and I, the First Consul General, that of treating his infirmities and receiving his tender caresses until your beneficence has pronounced the cancellation. The best of fathers, whom I love more than myself. Have a look of interest on my request and give happiness to a child who will never cease to wish for your conservation and who will use his life that can be useful to his homeland and prove to you his respect.
