A brief note in which the French army general and statesman Adolphe Niel (1802–1869) urges the continued support of an elderly war widow living in the south-west of France.

The widow, ‘Toulouse’, living in the commune of Muret in the Haute-Garonne department, receives 50 francs a year in aid from the Ministry of War. The widow lives in misery and is extremely old, and Niel pleads to ‘M. Betitot’(?) to continue her support in 1852.
