Letter from de Saint-Ange to Hugo

Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Hugo castigating the attempts by Mr. and Mme Bonsoni to defraud (a) the writer, over a revival of Lucrèce Borgia and (b) Mme Alboni, (a singer recommended to Alexandre Dumas by Mlle Mars), over money Hugo intended for her.

Saint-Ange is unidentified. He was perhaps a relative of Ange-François Fariau de Saint-Ange (1747-1810).
