In this note Napoléon refers to another letter he wrote previously, urging the recipient to pursue matters in his sense and presenting himself as the most suitable person to promote things: "Je ne avais parlé qu'après donner dictat [?] à cette lettre et je vous prie d'elle faire la petition d'écrire que personne n'est destiné autant [...] que moi et non plus noté à pouvoir faire quelque chose que puisse le poursuivre. Si mes occupations me laisse[nt] [...] je ferais moimême avec urgence sa lettre. | Bonaparte". (Translation: "I only spoke after having dictated [?] the letter, and I request you to make a petition of it, writing that nobody is so destined or more respected than I am to do something that could advance it. If my occupations permit me I will treat your letter urgently myself. Bonaparte".
