THE PATRIZI MEMOIRS

A ROMAN FAMILY UNDER NAPOLEON

1796-1815

The Marchesa Maddalena Patrizi, in compiling these Memoirs, had but one end in view, that of making the subjects of them known to their direct descendants. It was far from her thoughts to give the work to the public ; one hundred copies only were printed. One was offered to our Holy Father, Pius X of Blessed Memory, and in a private audience granted to the writer he expressed the very great pleasure which the perusal of the Memoirs had afforded him.
