His naval knowledge drew him a deserved reputation, which he justified during his lifetime ... Assigned to the instruction of the Marine Guard at Rochefort, he prepared with "Verdun de la Crenne" a thesis on tactics and the code of signals , according to a method interviewed by Bigot de Morogues. ('The signals are transmitted with 31 flags and 9 flames'), the meaning of which depends on their position on the various masts, nautical signals still in use by most of the nations of Europe.
The work is published by Malassis in Brest. It will have three successive editions: 1776 , 1778 , 1779 ...
