Short summary:  Request for being awarded the Légion d'Honneur. As he does not want people to think that it would be a favour, he writes himself the note to be published if he is awarded, where the minister is said to have made the request for him. He sends his works and hopes that the minister will recognize him as a benefactor of humanity, especially for what he has done during the epidemics of 1854, 1865 and 1866.
