Praschnitz [in East Prussia, now Przasnysz in Poland], May 15, 1807. 1 p. in-4, address on the back, restored tears due to the opening on the address leaf without damage to the text. ENGAGED IN THE CAMPAIGN OF POLAND, MARSHAL MASSENA WAS AT THE HEAD OF THE 5th CORPS OF THE GREATER ARMY, in replacement of marshal Lannes, wounded. General François-Xavier Donzelot had been serving since February 1806 in the army of Naples, where he had made friends with the marshal: André Masséna had been commander-in-chief of this army in January-February 1806, and then had been at the head of the 1st corps until January 1807. " ... S[A] M[AJESTE] L'EMPEREUR M'AVAIT BIEN PROMIS DE FAIRE DONNER L'ORDRE DE VENIR A LA GRANDE ARMEE, before leaving him at the grand quartier supérieur, I reminded him again in such a way that I was waiting for you at any moment, he had also promised me your advance. The general who was here before I arrived, and who has returned to Naples, will have hindered everything as he should. I will say no more about it. ONE FIGHTS EVERYWHERE. WHY ARE YOU NOT WITH ME? Farewell, my dear friend, never doubt my very sincere attachment to you... "
