Signed autograph letter addressed to his grandmother
S.l.n.d., 4 pages in-12 in ink.
"I am writing to you from the Château Rose, which for the moment is far from resembling Sleeping Beauty's, given the number of young males frolicking in the long corridors [...] We entertain ourselves by photographing animals and people to the great pleasure of the cook, who probably finds himself very handsome because he makes thigh eff orts in front of the camera. The weather [...] is chilly [...]. We easily get a drop in the nose [...] and it is the pipe, the horrible pipe that seduces us and invites us to go round the hearth that we smoke in a row like an exhibition [...]".
