Lot 792: Belgian composer and violinist (1820–1881) considered an essential part of the Franco-Belgian violin school during the mid-19th century. ALS in French, signed "H. Vieuxtemps," one page, 5.5 x 7.5, May 4, 1861. In part (translated): "I wrote myself to Servais, if his intention was to pass the season here, to come over at Easter, which he did not. Now there is nothing more to be done in the business line for him; his object in coming could only be to make himself known favorably and to provoke arrangements for next year." Central vertical and horizontal folds (the vertical fold passing through the first letter of the signature), toning to edges, and scattered soiling, otherwise fine condition.
