L.A.S. "GP", [Torre del Lago October 1895], to his Florentine brother-in-law and factotum, Giuseppe "Beppe" RAZZI; 4 pages in-8; in Italian.

On October 9, Sarah BERNHARDT will be in Florence, in the role of Tosca, and Puccini will come with Elvira only that evening. As the children Tonio and Fosca are then alone, they beg Beppe to allow his wife [Elvira's sister] to come with Ciancio to the Castellaccio [Puccini's villa in Uzzano] for one evening, or more if they want... The costs will be borne by the undersigned ("Le spese s'intende a carico del rompitore di coglioni sottoscritto")... Ida will write to her about this since Elvira has written to her this evening. And since around the 12th Puccini is to go hunting with GINORI [the Marquis Carlo Ginori, his neighbour and dedicatee of Bohemia], Mrs. Ida and Ciancio will be able to stay, and then go to Lucca with Elvira, Fosca, etc.... He asks where Mrs. Bernhardt will play? He imagines it will be at the Niccolini ...
