From Napoleon Bonaparte to Joséphine de Beauharnais

I don't love you, not at all; on the contrary, I detest you.

You're a naughty, gawky, foolish Cinderella.

You never write me; you don't love your own husband; you know what pleasures your letters give him, and yet you haven't written him six lines.

Some fine night, the doors will be broken open, and there I'll be.
[November 1796]
