Placard (76 x 53 cm) made in NICE (06) on 26 Pluviôse year 10 (15 February 1802). Speech of Châteauneuf-Randon at the time of taking of his functions of Prefect of the Alpes Maritimes. "France, victorious over her enemies by the courage of her defenders, by the strength of her principles of philosophy, humanity, justice and tolerance, especially by the great heroic virtues of the First Consul BONAPARTE, finds herself in the front ranks of all the European nations, and there is not one of them that does not take pride in being part of it. Happy are the regions united to the French Government. Happy especially the inhabitants of the Alpes-Maritimes who, by their topographical position, are able to make their industry and their precious commodity more valuable; but to achieve this, the individual will of all citizens is necessary..."
