The story about Napoleon & Josephine is apparently true

"Ne te lave pas, j'accours et dans huit jours je suis là. " (Don't wash, I'm rushing back and I'll be there in a week.) according to, it's from Napoleon's love letters to Josephine (Lettres d'amour à Joséphine, Fayard, p. 155)

Or not. See the comment below.

I have the book "lettres d'amour à Joséphine" Fayard, and I didn't find this letter.

Maybe it's too good to be true?
