Degas reproaches a French journalist—"You saw very well my impatience"

ALS in French, signed “Degas,” one page both sides, 3.75 x 6, no date, circa 1890. Letter to the literary critic Louis Ganderax, in full (translated): "Yes, it's true, my dear Ganderax, I was surprised by this journalism. You saw very well my impatience at the table at Mme. Straus' house when you quoted me to your neighbor. It doesn't bother me any more. Le Dariger and l'evenui were honorably quoted. I believe I'll be safe at your house. You'll put a little space between us—peace in the household." In fine condition. Accompanied by a receipt from noted autograph collector Paul C. Richards.
