*Charles-Lucien BONAPARTE prince of Canino (1803-1857) son of Lucien Bonaparte, ornithologist and scholar, Italian patriot. L.A.S. "Charles Pce de Musignano", Siena 12 July 1833, to Eugène Le Bon, at the home of Prince Bacciochi, in Bologna; 2 pages and a half in folio, address with black wax stamp.
They left Rome for Florence: "Please announce it to my uncle [Bacciochi] with our tender and respectful compliments..." He asked for confirmation that M. Lucchesi had indeed been given the copies of the Iconography [his Iconografia della Fauna Italica] which he had kindly taken care of...". The rumours about our stay in Basel are completely unfounded, as you may well think. Zenaide, who is due to give birth at the beginning of September, will leave Florence only to return to Rome at the end of November "... He himself intends to come with a son, "to give my duties to my dear Uncle and thus take his instructions for the baptism, where he must appear at least by proxy"... We enclose the manuscript of a biographical note translated from Italian by his wife Zenaide.
