MANET Edouard (1832-1883)
L.A.S. "Edouard Manet", Paris 10 September , to Miss Eva GONZALÈS; 4 pages in8.
Interesting letter, a few days before the beginning of the Siege of Paris.
He is extremely worried about the situation, and has sent his mother and wife to safety in the Lower Pyrenees... "I believe that we unfortunate Parisians are going to witness as actors something dreadful - death, fire, looting, carnage - if Europe does not arrive in time to intervene. At the moment, there are masses of mobiles from all over France who are staying in people's homes or camping out in squares and boulevards. Paris is distressing to see - many people are leaving - the women are right as much as not having the worries, misery and dangers that a siege can bring" . Mrs steVens is in Brussels, the morisot seem to have to stay and have no news of their son, cHampfLeurY is gone. "It's a debacle, we're fighting at the stations to get away. ...everything will be disrupted, probably all communications will be disrupted."
