Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Blanc thanking him for his kind words. He humorously says that they correspond through Hungarian colonels as colonel Thaly [Zsigmond] brought his letter to Blanc. Hugo adds that he has read Blanc's Révolution Française and says this is a great work 'where we can hear the lions roaring'.
