Administrative / Biographical History

[11 Feb 1875] [no address]

This may be part of the letter received by JB from Louis Blanc when she made her first visit on behalf of the Society to Paris in the winter of 1874/1875. In a letter from Paris to her husband dated 12 Feb 1875 she says 'I had a long letter to-day from Louis Blanc'

There are only the two last pages of this letter with little information except formal ending, but he does say: 'Je terminerai cette letter, a la fois trop longue et trop courte ...' And JB refers to the 'long letter' received that day from Louis Blanc

Biog: Jean Joseph Charles Louis Blanc (1811-1882) (known always as Louis Blanc)
