To Camillo Benso di Cavour, written in support of the naturalization of the jurist and politician Cesare Beccalossi (1799-1868) from Brescia. Casati mentions that Beccalossi has been recommended to him by a "Sr. Dossi mio collega nel Governo provvisorio", referring to the Five Days of Milan in 1848, and underlines that Beccalossi does not ask for anything but "the Sardinian citizenship, as he is currently of no state".

A liberal who supported the unification of Italy, Cesare Beccalossi had emigrated from Brescia to Piedmont in 1857. He was able to return to Brescia following the Second War of Independence in 1859. On 25 March 1860 he was elected as a deputy to the Chamber of Deputies of the Kingdom of Sardinia.

On mourning paper. With a minor tear to the fold.
