Monsieur Eloin,

Je vous prie par ce courrier
d'écrire différentes choses de
ma part à Hidalgo : D'abord
je voudrais savoir si l'Impé-
ratrice
Regularized:l'Impératrice
Eugénie conserve ou
détruit mes ;lettres? Pour ma
part je préfèrerais qu'elle les
détruisit car, cette remarque
est pour vous, on ne sait
jamais ce qui peut arriver en
France, en 48 tout a été publié.
Je ne voudrais pas que beau-
coup
Regularized:beaucoup
de ce que je dis sur les
Mexicains passât inutilement


2

à la postérité d'autant plus
que je garde moi-même des
copies de ces lettres ici.

Tachez qu'Hidalgo confiden
tiellement
Regularized:confidentiellement
s'assure du sort
de ces lettres et le cas échéant
conseille de ne pas les garder,
au moins en original. 1

2° Dites-à Hidalgo d'abonner
sa légation à l'Ere nouvelle,
cela empêche d'envoyer des
découpures par lettre.

3° Veuillez-lui demander
le nom et l'adresse d'un
des meilleurs relieurs de Paris
et d'un libraire que l'on
puisse charger des commandes


3

de livres qu'on a à faire là.

4° Demandez la même chose
à Arrangoiz pour Londres, car
les livres anglais ne peuvent
pas être reliés à la française.
Il me faut libraire et
relieur également en Angleterre.

5° Je vous prie de prendre
un sémestre d'abonnement
à l'Ere nouvelle pour le
compte de mon frère, le
Duc de Brabant qui l'a désiré
et d'en envoyer la note à
Goffinet, son trésorier en
lui expliquant la chose et
lui recommandant de trans-
mettre le journal là où


4

mon frère le trouvera.

C.Charlotte
Je recommande à votre
obligeance le livre de Bazaine
afin de l'avoir avant ou
pour le jour de l'an.
