Writer, Playwright, Revolutionary Socialist, Many times Deputy, Condemned to deportation, imprisoned, Member of the Commune (Vierzon/CHER 1810 - Saint-Gratien (95) 1889). 3 autograph letters signed and an engraving of his portrait (Litho. d'Auguste Bry. Paris Rousselin Éditeur): L.A.S. to Mr BOULÉ, rue du Coq héron, 12 Sept 1838 - "My dear friend, Mr Galibert making me sue for a British note of 500 francs, by Mr Tourreil to whom he had made me subscribe it, I beg you to lend me these 500 francs at 6 weeks of maturity, because at this time Dupont owes me to pay...". 1p in-12° + L.A.S. to BATISSIER, 43 rue Notre-Dame de Lorette, 2 February 18 (41) - 1p in-8° - "My dear friend, we did not leave our friend LACHET there and the Committee must deal with him at the next meetings. The Dramatic Commission, which is richer than the committees, would take care of him too; but I think it would be necessary for our poor friend to make his request officially. Write to him to this effect..." + L.A.S. to Albert AUBERT, of SAINTE-PÉLAGIE (Prison) of January 12, 1846 - "My friend. I am moved to tears, delighted to ecstasy by your admirable serial. It would make me believe in the goodness of my work. Your talent, like a magic prism, has illuminated it with a thousand colours and a thousand lights. What praise, for God's sake! It is overwhelming, frightening! The slightest criticism, you wrap it in myrrh and balsam, in rose and laurel. If I do not die of joy, I shall die of fear. What a bill of exchange you have just drawn on me for the future! You have kissed me too hard, noble and robust friend, I am suffocating, I am lost. You see, I have already lost my head. I am reproaching you. Ah, I am mad, I am drunk, my heart is overflowing, you have filled it with a feeling of gratitude which will never cease to answer and which always fills it." - 1p in-8°.
