Scope and Content

Autograph letter to Hugo. The writer, starting a stage career, asks Hugo for an interview in the hope that he will use his influence in her favour. At the end of the letter, Greppo asks Hugo to grant the interview.

Damé is unidentified, but Greppo was a Republican deputy of the Rhône (1848-51), who had to go into exile after President Bonaparte's coup in 1851. He lived in Belgium, then England, and return in France in 1859. He was elected again in 1871 and remained deputy of Paris until 1885.
