Général Hecht,


I have only recently returned to the Eagles and the service of l,Empereur.

I am honoured to have received correspondence from the War Office advising that I am to leave command of the 5émé Cuirassiers and instead take command of the 2émé Brigade, 3émé Division, 4émé Corps d'Armée. I am sorry to leave the 5émé Cuirassiers, they are a magnificent body of men, with a fierce reputation on the battlefield.

I do not wish to offend the Regiments within my newly appointed command, however, as the full transfer has not yet been confirmed within La Grande Armée organisation, may I put myself forward as a candidate for Divisional Command.

Back in the mists of time, I previously commanded both at Brigade and Divisional level.

My only desire is to serve l'Empereur to the best of my ability in whatever manner he sees fit.

I am at your service.
