Saint-Saens, Camille



Autograph letter signed



Autograph letter signed, two pages (both sides), 5,25 x 8 inch, in French, to a friend - concerning a case dealt with by the authors' commission, written and signed in black ink "C. Saint-Saens", with mild intersecting letter fold - in nearly very fine condition. Translated: "My dear friend, This past Friday I appeared in front of the author`s commission and they welcomed me with open arms and assured me that our rights were quite obvious. We are owed either a performance or compensations. I have opened the door to conciliation by proposing to replace the compensations with a fixed date agreement for a new work. We would then have it all set up for `Marcellus` which we will have to do at the opera comique because there is no other theater available. This is all contigent on your approval, of course, because I would never seperate your interests from mine. The commission will hear du Locle alone next Friday. All yours - C. Saint-Saens"
