Description
- ILLE AND UGLY. 1797. Deputy COSTARD (Alexis-Joseph) born in Saint-Méen (Ille-et-Vilaine) 1753 - Vice-President of the Court of Appeal, Deputy of Ille-et-Vilaine in 1810 -
RENNES (35) 19 Fructidor Year 5 (5 Sept 1797) - Autograph letter signed COSTARD; to his former Colleague and Friend AUBRÉE Deputy to the Council of Elders - TB political text - "COUASNIER, your successor at BAINS, made me pass 150 Pounds for your treatment of the month of Germinal as Director of the Jury of this Arrondissement.... We can no longer touch our Salary, however modest it may be, if we compare it to that received by the teachers at the College of RENNES ... The tranquillity has not been disturbed here for some time, although according to the Paris Thermometer, one plays up or down. Wise and peaceful People conceive alarms, dissensions which rise and seem to increase between the first powers of the Republic; One fears a rupture, a shock which plunges France back into the horrors of an internal war; One fears to see renewed the Bastilles, the Scaffolds, the Torches and the Daggers. May God turn away such plagues from our heads; and give us the good Spirit to heal the wounds that still bleed. Peace on the outside, calm on the inside can only repair our losses and depend on the union between powers. We feel it here, we say it and we hope that the Council of Elders, in its wisdom, will be able to maintain it..." - 3pp in-4°.
