ALS in French, two pages on two adjoining sheets, 5.25 x 8, August 4, 1889. Letter to painter Numa Coste, in full (loosely translated): "Did you see, my dear Coste, what happened with the tapestries founded in the basement at Notre-Dame! I have been offered by another part, and I would like to know what it is about what you already told me. A simple word as an answer. I am writing to you in between two sessions of my work. I work on my novel as hard as possible in order to be finished in December; and we are going to Paris, what I think I already told you about: we are moving from Balu Street to go next, to Bruxelles Street. All this, make me do as much as possible while I am still quiet here. Alexis, who I have right now next to me, sends you a big hug together with mine, and also the best regards from my wife." In fine condition.
