Louis-Bernard Guyton de Morveau (4 January 1737 - 2 January 1816), notable French chemist and politician, authentic, autographed annotated letter (ALS). The letter measures approximately 4" x 7" in size and is dated September 17, 1794.  

The letter is addressed to an un-named citizen, whom Morveau notifies of the absence of his colleague Berlier. Morveau takes pleasure in advising him that the members of the Committee of Public Safety had read the citizen's letter, but he must realize that they cannot give him a decision on it. 

Morveau was a member of the Committee of Public Safety after the fall of Robispierre. A notable chemist, his scientific accomplishments include producing the first systematic method of chemical nomenclature. In 1783, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. 

This one page, untranslated letter is crisply signed at the conclusion by Morveau. It is in good to very good condition, with overall light toning not affecting the signature. The letter contains some minor scattered creases.
