Hippolyte Menier to Barbara Leigh Bodichon

Scope and Content

Autograph letter, signed, 4pp. 8vo., 13 Avenue de Paris, Versailles.

'My dear Mme. Bodichon,' he has been too 'desperately sad since we met in Paris' to answer her 'kind note,' but has received the parcel of papers and 'will do what you require from me about the 'College for Women' at Hitchin, and speak of your proposal in the avenir des femmes'. 'Pray let me know if my 'Lettres pour Tous' could be translated into English?' About the tragic shooting of a 'dear young man'.
