Letter from Claude Dalmais to Hugo

Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Hugo from a penniless manservant begging Hugo to help him obtain a licence to sing and recite in the taverns of his native Lyon. This would make him so well known a figure that his master would let him go to law against a rogue holding part of an immense secret treasure whose existence has been disclosed to the best in the land.
