This LOCK of HAIR of NAPOLEON BUONAPARTE was presented to me by Miss Balcomb who herself cut it from the head of the Emperor by his permission. [There follows a signature:] H Wright. Purser of the Hon EIC’s Ship Winchilsea.
Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god!
uhhhhhhhh that’s kinda gross, actually
I wish my university library would’ve had a piece of Napoleon’s hair. Although I would’ve probably tried to acquire it...
/screams oh right that reminds me; apparently there’s a lock of Nappy’s hair at the special collections library here...
