Summary

MS 10380 comprises a letter, written in French, dictated by Jacques Arago and signed by him in pencil, offering his correspondent the four volume 'Souvenirs' account of the Freycinet voyage. The letter is undated except for the month, September, but Arago comments that he has been blind for nearly four years, which suggests it was written in 1841.
