Letter from Jacques Reyne Isidore Acarie Baron (178.-185.) to Hugo

Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Hugo on behalf of his children, actor Alfred Baron and actress Delphine Fournier, who want to rejoin the company of the Odéon. But Bocage has just been made director of the theatre and he is antagonistic to Fournier (husband of Delphine) because of adverse comments by Fournier three years before in Le Corsaire and a subsequent law-suit instituted and won by Bocage. Baron the Elder asks Hugo to help his children by writing a letter of recommendation to Bocage.

Baron was a French painter, lithographer and dramatist.
