This has the great advantage of being something special without [illegible] much development. / and to give you authority in the theater world. And then, it's a path that leads somewhere else, anyway, you immediately welcomed me there. It didn’t surprise me, / but that is not a reason why I do not thank you very affectionately. A. Dumas f."
