Lot 654: French naturalist writer (1850–1893) considered the greatest French author of short stories. ALS in French, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 3.75 x 6, personal monogrammed letterhead, January 7, 1889. Letter to a "dear colleague," in full (translated): "I agree entirely with your idea of amending the regulations of our society of writers, and I am ready to add my signature to call for a new general assembly. It will however be impossible for me to attend as I shall only be in Paris for a few days and will spend the rest of winter in Cannes. In any case, I am ready to sign the modification drafts that you will submit to me and on which we certainly agree." Scattered toning and soiling, otherwise fine condition.
