L.A.S. "J.F. Millet", Gréville February 10, 1866, to his brother Jean; 2 pages and a quarter in-8 (tired at the folds and a little soiled). Moving family letter. "Our poor sister Émelie is at her lowest ebb. I don't know how she can hold out so long undermined as she is by illness, as she has been in bed for nearly three months. We can't get her to say a word or take anything. There is no hope of saving her unless there is a miracle. Her husband is better, but still cannot get up. Finally, my poor Jean, mourning is well established in this house. [...] Anything more I could tell you would be useless"... He adds in a postscript: "My letter was waiting to be taken away & in the meantime poor Emilie is dead. Poor good girl, she has entered eternity".
