Letter from Gaussin to Hugo

Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Hugo presumably from the actress who had played Marie Tudor in Bordeaux. Hugo's portrayal of the Jew's character, the writer says, nearly caused a revolt by the 'twelve tribes of Bordeaux', but his poetic genius turned the evening into a triumph.

Written at Bordeaux.

Marked 'r' (répondu) in Hugo's hand.
