Letter from Alexandre Guérin to Hugo

Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Hugo requesting a reply to a letter of a month earlier which, Guérin insists, was quite disinterested and sought only to let a poor devil of a poet no longer remain unacquainted with the great artist of letters.

Marked 'r' (répondu) in Hugo's hand.

Guérin was a French poet, writer, playwright, and editor-in-chief of the journal Le Succès.
