love letters | Napoleon Bonaparte

An interesting looking character, that Napoleon Bonaparte, but wow...just read this excerpt from a love letter to his sweet Josephine...

"I wake filled with thoughts of you. Your portrait and the intoxicating evening which we spent yesterday have left my senses in turmoil.

Sweet incomparable Josephine, what a strange effect you have on my heart!

Yielding to the profound feelings which overwhelm me, I draw from your lips, from your heart a love which consumes me with fire?

Until then, mio dolce amor, a thousand kisses; but give me none in return, for they set my blood on fire."

How lovely...
