Letter from the Comtesse Du Chilleau, née de Tournon, to Hugo

Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Hugo expressing admiration for his Ode on the death of Charles X and asking if he could either send her a copy or name a bookseller who could supply one.

Several people bore the name of Du Chilleau and Tournon, but the writer cannot be identified. The French National Library references a writer named Marie-Françoise Tournon Du Chilleau (1763-1825), but she died 12 years before this letter.
