Gribeauval: A man, a plan.

From my post: Griveauval In Prussia - 1755 of 7/7/2010, 12:48 pm

From Nardin Gribeauval: lieutenant général des armées du roi (1715-1789) (1981):

"... nomme Griboval (sic) et est capitaine des mineurs." p 44, 2nd paragraph.

"... me remettre elle-même un modèle en bois d'une pièce de canon de campagne avec le dessein (sic) et tout ce qui appartient au service de ladite pièce.." p 42, last paragraph.

Et dans une lettre chiffrée à Rouillé, ministre des affaires étrangèères, il donne des détails sur la remise du modèle: «Le roi de Prusse a effectivement touché cette corde mais ce n'a été qu'après m'avoir remis lui-même un modèle en bois de la pièce de canon de campagne avec tout ce qui est relatif à son service ...." p. 43, 1st paragraph.

"... Gribeauval ..., arrive le 20 mai [1755] à Berlin ...." p 43, last paragraph.

"Le 9 juin, après un séjour de trois semaines (SHS sic) à Potsdam et à Berlin, Gribeauval prend le chemin du retour en convoyant le modèle et les plans du canon prussien et de ses attiralls." p 46, first full paragraph.

So, Gribeauval brought a wooden model of a cannon, plans of it and its accoutrements back to Paris in 1755. Nuff said.
