SAINTE-HELENE - Arthur BERTRAND (1817-1871), son of General Bertrand, the Emperor's faithful companion, he was born on St. Helena; at his birth, Fanny, his mother, presented him to Napoleon as follows: "Sire, I have the honour of presenting to you the first Frenchman who has entered Longwood without the Governor's permission"; it might as well be said that this boy, who was born close to Napoleon during his captivity, was his "son in exile": Autograph letter signed, 1 p in-8 plus address page, headed with his initials, February 18, 1840, to a bookseller, he asks him to give his servant for his brother the Viscount Napoleon Bertrand "La Confession Générale" by Frédéric Soulié [A few months later, Arthur Bertrand will embark with his father on the Belle-Poule to fetch Napoleon's Ashes]
