ALS in French, signed “L. Pasteur,” one page, 5.25 x 8.25, July 6, 1886. Letter to Monsieur Rochard, in full (translated): "A nephew of mine, whose affairs are not going well, writes me that he would like to be appointed as military superintendent in New Caledonia. He enlisted at the beginning of the 1870 war, was gravely wounded and was awarded the médaille militaire. He is only 34 years old. I would be grateful if you could tell me to which person or department chief at the Admiralty I should address myself to fulfill the wishes of this young man; this type of employment must in fact, it seems to me, depend on the Ministry which you have honored in so many ways." In fine condition.
