Rare ALS in French, signed “Voltaire,” one page, 7.25 x 9.75, May 26. Handwritten letter to Monsieur Fabri, sent from his home in Geneva, "Les Délices," commenting on some financial difficulties. In full (translated): "I await each day, Monsieur, the money coming to me by way of public conveyances, considering that the exchange rate in Geneva is too high. Once I have something, I will be at your orders. I ask you to have a little empathy for my small troubles. I have been forced to send the workers off on circuit. Once I am at Ferney, I will have the honor of requesting an hour of your time." In fine condition.
