Re: Tell the Emperor I die for him!

Thanks ! Seems to be taken from Macdonald's Souvenirs (1892, p.160):

Wrede, who had just been wounded: Dites l'Empereur que je meurs pour lui; je lui recommande ma femme et mes enfants.

Macdonald: Mais il me semble que vous pourrez lui faire cette recommandation vous-mme, et, de plus, faire encore des enfants votre femme.

Macdonald was right. Luckily, the wound turned out to be unimportant.
