Lot 648: Boldly penned ALS in French, one page, 4.5 x 7, March 4, 1878. Letter to poet Raoul Lafagette. In part (translated): "You eloquently expose a fair and fruitful idea…I hasten to send you my full support and warmest sympathy." In fine condition, with intersecting folds with a tiny separation at the center (the vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature) and trivial soiling. Lafagette had offered to organize an international poetry contest, chaired by Victor Hugo. Considered as 'the poet of the Pyrenees,' he worked for numerous literary journals and was an intimate of many writers. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 453 Sunday, 17th May 2015 Estimate: $1500-2000
