BONAPARTE (FAMILY). Set of 6 letters. 1823-1847. 200 / 300 € - BONAPARTE (CAROLINE). Letter signed to her "dear brother". Trieste, July 7, 1825. "The two good letters you sent me must have flattered me that the feelings of friendship that united us have not been affected by times and events. As such, I dare to ask you a favor. I need someone willing to take on my power of attorney to FOLLOW UP IN TOSCANY AND IN THE LUCKY STATES THE MATTERS CONCERNING THE SUCCESSION OF OUR DEAR AND POOR PAULINE AS IT RELATES TO ME [Pauline Bonaparte, Princess Borghese, had just died on June 9, 1825]. I don't know anyone in those countries, and I would be very grateful if you would have the power of attorney I am sending you filled in with the name of someone you trust...". (one p. in-4). The deposed Queen of Naples lived in exile after the Empire until her death, initially under surveillance in various parts of Austria, including Trieste for seven years (1824-1831). - BONAPARTE (Caroline). Letter signed to the lawyer and businessman Giuseppe Vannutelli. Trieste, July 11, 1825. She requests his help in settling certain points of her sister Pauline's estate, in particular concerning her own daughter Letizia Murat, Marquise Pepoli; she then asks that he make inquiries about Count Giulio Rasponi, whom her other daughter, Louise Murat, is to marry (3 pp. 1/4 in-4, address on back, heavy wetness and a few tears). - BONAPARTE (JEROME). Autograph letter signed "Jérôme" to one of his nieces. Rome, April 23, 1825. "I am sending my niece what she has asked for & reiterate to her the assurance of my attachment. Her affectionate uncle..." (1/3 p. in-12). - BONAPARTE (LOUIS). Letter signed "C. de St Leu" to "Messieurs François Borri & comp." Florence, March 4, 1827. " ... I beg you to carry on your books the funds I have with you, from which I shall receive the interest of one sixth per cent per month... I forgot to tell you, however, that I cannot consent to the 15-day period for withdrawing my funds; I only consent to such a small interest in order to always have my funds at my disposal; therefore, I beg you to reduce the 15-day period to 5."

Rome, March 30, 1831. "I cannot describe my affliction to you; I leave you the comparison. God wants to be our only good, he wants all our sacrifices, he wants to force us to have no other hope than in him. Let's abandon ourselves to him, he's still the only one who can console us. I am better, it is true, but it is difficult for me to write at length..." (3/4 p. in-8 square). Letter written shortly after the death of Charlotte Bonaparte's husband (March 17, 1817), Prince Napoléon-Louis Bonaparte, son of Louis Bonaparte and Hortense de Beauharnais, nephew of Napoléon I and younger brother of the future Napoléon III. - NAPOLEON (Napoléon Bonaparte, known as the Prince).
