BAUDELAIRE Charles (1821-1867)
L.A.S. "Charles", [Paris late April or early May 1848?], to HER MOTHER Madame AUPICK rue des Martyrs; 2 pages in-8, address.
"I have just lost twenty francs that I brought back from Neuilly and which are for me today a fortune". Baudelaire has been looking for three days for a way to see his mother to obtain the authorization she must give him for Mr. Ancelle. "I suffer a lot at the idea of meeting your Husband; it would thus be necessary that you deign to mark me an hour when I will not meet him at Your place". The visit is indispensable "all the more so as it is possible that I may even leave before you" ... General AUPICK was appointed to Constantinople. Baudelaire, then editorial secretary of La Tribune nationale, did not in fact leave Paris until October, for Châteauroux].
