Letter from Henri Justamant (1815-1893) to Hugo

Scope and Content

Autograph letter in reply to Hugo's letter of 22 October. The writer explains that he had erroneously requested a 'concession' from Hugo. He now requests simply an 'authorisation' for a ballet and adds that Amédée Guyot is dealing with the question of royalties.

Written at Lyon.

Marked 'r' (répondu) in Hugo's hand.

Justamant was a French dancer and ballet choreographer (he played in Paris, Grand Théâtre at Lyon, Bordeaux, Nantes, Bruxelles, London, and Berlin).
