Rare letter in English by Napoleon sells for $404,757A rare letter in English written by Napoleon Bonaparte -- and replete with errors -- fetched $406,445 at auction. The one-page letter, dated March 9, 1816, penned by Napoleon during his post-Waterloo exile on the South Atlantic island of Saint Helena, was one of just three known in the world. Addressed to the Count of Las Cases, Napoleon's companion in exile, the letter was acquired by the private Museum of Letters and Manuscripts in Paris and originally estimated to fetch just $75,000 to $100,000. In his "Memorial of Saint Helena", Las Cases wrote about how Napoleon began in March 1816 to correspond with him in English in order to practice the language of his jailers that he had begun learning a few weeks earlier. The Count also wrote in particular about the auctioned letter, saying: "The emperor did not sleep that night -- during his insomnia, he decided to write me a new letter in English. "He sent it sealed to me, I corrected his errors, and replied to him, in English also, by mail. "He understood the letter, and that convinced him of his progress and proved to him that he could, completely, correspond in his new language." Despite Las Cases encouraging words, Napoleon's writing required some guesswork. After his defeat to the British at the 1815 Battle of Waterloo, Napoleon was imprisoned and then exiled to Saint Helena where he died in 1821 age 51.
