Grand Marshal of Napoleon, beautiful and rare letter from the Duke of Padua with 2 lines written and signed by the Marshal Duke of Albufera
-SUCHET (Louis Gabriel, Marshal, Duke of Albufera, 1770-1826) and Arrighi de Casanova (Jean-Thomas, general, Duke of Padua, 1778-1853): Years of services, campaigns and injuries of Mr. Joseph Boério Captain, aide-de-camp from the Lieutenant general Duke of Padua. On the back of the years of service of Boerio, a long manuscript, dated on September 9, 1814 and signed by the Duke of Padua praising his aide-de-camp. Whereupon an autograph note signed "Mashall Duke of Albufera": "I ask His Excellency the Minister of war to have regard to the request of Mr. Boério and get with the kindness of his Majesty, the cross of officer of the legion of honour." Boerio (1790-1863) who ended colonel Commander of the Palace and of the square of St. cloud does not got the title of officer of the legion of honour, to introduce these few lines on the life of Marshal Suchet, let's listen to Napoleon himself: "If I had two marshals as Suchet in Spain, not only I have conquered it but I would have kept it!";" If I had Suchet instead of Grouchy, I would have not lost at Waterloo!" Therefore for the Emperor, Suchet was among the best officers of the Empire, with the generals Gerard and Clauzel. I must say that, as Davout and Lannes, he never lost a single battle...
He participated in the siege of Toulon in 1793 at the same time as the future general Bonaparte; with his men, he captures the English general O'Hara, then follows Napoleon in Italy in 1796. Assigned some time later to the HQ of Brune and then Masséna, he went, at the advent of the Empire, under the orders of Marshal Soult and became divisional of Lannes. He did the first campaign in Austria in 1805, then those of Prussia and Poland.
