Analyse : (vol. 2, p. 133) Le vendredi 13 juin 1817, Napoléon s'exprime ainsi devant Gourgaud sur Benjamin Constant, Germaine de Staël et leur correspondance : "Benjamin Constant m'a montré de ses lettres; elles étaient plus que passionnées. Elle menaçait de tuer son fils si Benjamin ne faisait pas ce qu'elle désirait. En 1805, elle me fit savoir que si je lui faisais payer deux millions, elle écrirait tout ce que je voudrais. Je l'envoyai promener. Après le dix-huit Brumaire, Joseph me tourmenta pour faire nommer Benjamin Constant au Tribunat. Je ne voulais pas, d'abord, mais je finis par céder; j'en écrivis à Lebrun, et Benjamin fut nommé. Au bout de quelques mois, il se mit dans l'opposition, croyant que je voulais l'acheter. Il aurait dû savoir que je crosse mes ennemis, mais ne les achète pas !"

Napoléon à Sainte-Hélène by Emmanuel-Auguste-Dieudonné Las Cases( Book )
4 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here, together for the first time, is the testimony of four companions of Napoleon. Las Cases is with Napoleon and leaves at the end of 1816, at a time of disillusionment. Gourgaud remained with Napoleon until March 1818 and tragically becomes domestic drama. Gourgaud exasperated his sovereign by a morbid jealousy. Then a long period of boredom and loneliness experienced with Montholon and described in his writings. Finally, the last days of the deposed emperor, in May 1821 are described by Bertrand with a rawness in the details that turns scatological
