LAMARTINE Alphonse de (1790-1869)
L.A.S. "Lamartine", Saint-Point 20 May [1825], at the bookshop Urbain CANEL in Paris; 1 page and a half in-8, address with broken red wax seal. Send the manuscript of his Epistles to his publisher. "Here is Monsieur 424 verses in all instead of the 300 promised. I wanted to count the quality not the number by sending a hundred more than agreed". He asks him to give M. de Genoude the 1000 francs agreed upon, and indicates corrections: "There are only two verses to be changed in the Epistle to Lavigne. In the 2nd volume of Meditations there are only a few typographical errors, like horses instead of goats, in the last part of the Preludes, and to remove the last stanza from the one entitled I believe the Past"... He adds that "the verses are sent by the stagecoach of Mâcon to M. de Genoude" . 2 L.A.S. of Léon DAUDET to Louis Brun (1928 and s.d.) is attached.
