With Napoleon on St. Helena, Pages 110-120.

Napoleon has to reduce expenses and he tells Marchand he needs to cut his salary in half, Marchand asks for even less and Napoleon insists on keeping Marchand at his previous full salary.

We recently finished: With Napoleon in Russia. Now we’re reading the memoirs of Napoleon’s Valet Marchand from their time together all over Europe and at St. Helena.

Then I will read the Memoirs of Hortense Bonaparte. All three writers of these memoirs are considered exceptionally honest. All three essentially lived with Napoleon. Then I plan to read Napoleon’s letters to Josephine. You will see that Napoleon is the same person in all of these accounts. I’m doing this because I believe this is important and that our whole present world-in-crisis comes out of this True story.
