Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Hugo. Didron apologises for not mentioning Le Rhin in l'Univers but will refer to it in a later article. He sends some articles of his own about restoration plans for Notre Dame, thanks Hugo for censuring Debret's work on St. Denis and finally informs him that Montalembert has persuaded the Archbishop of Paris to give control of the Notre Dame restorations to the Comité de l'Instruction publique.
