Joseph Poniatowski Letter Signed "Joseph Prince Poniatowski." One page with integral blank, 7.25" x 9", in French, Warsaw, February 18, 1810, to an unknown recipient thanking him for a letter, in full: "As you have known for a long time the esteem and friendship I have for you - you will certainly not doubt, I hope, the pleasure you gave me with your letter of January 1st. The part you were willing to take during the last campaign was very favorable for me. And the wishes you made for my well-being are furthermore another reason of the gratitude of an old friend in whose feelings you may sure to find the utmost mutual sentiments and a sincere desire to see you happy." Smoothed folds; spot of foxing at lower right corner.

    Prince Joseph Poniatowski (1763-1813) was the nephew of the last king of Poland who served as a field marshal for the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1794 he took part in the ill-fated Kosciuszko Insurrection and was later a marshal for the French Empire during the Napoleonic Wars, dying on October 16, 1813, during the Battle of Leipzig.
