ALS in Italian, one page, 4.75 x 7.25, August 11, 1838. Letter to a friend, written from Paris. In part (translated): "Your very appreciated letter of the 30th past, is so dear to my heart that I will preserve it as a jewel. My consolation is great in hearing you have been reestablished in health by the sea baths, which I beg you to continue. I am always sick and shall not have the pleasure to press you to my heart at Bologna, but I hope at Paris for your return. I warmly recommend to you my friend Mr. Degroot, who you already know as a very amiable person and celebrated artist of Carinetto. I am very grateful for the memory, that the ladies and gentlemen which you mention to me, preserve of me. I beg you to give them my thanks and respects." Affixed to a mount by its upper corners and in very good to fine condition, with light creasing, and minor paper loss to the bottom edge. A scarce and desirable handwritten letter from the violin virtuoso.
