On Saturday, August 19, 1820, after reading “The Venetians”, the discussion between Napoleon and Montholon turns once again around the author, Antoine Vincent Arnault, whom the Emperor says he appreciates. Montholon’s general immediately added his name to the list of hypothetical candidates for his replacement on the island. In fact, between Mrs. Bertrand, her husband and de Montholon, the topics of conversation go round and round on this sole subject: when to leave and by whom to be replaced.
