Autographed letter signed, one page, 4,5 x 7 inch, 17.04.1890, in French, to Paul Bonnetain - Maurice Rolland thanks his correspondent and sends him his card for Hartmann (music publisher Georges Hartmann, 1843-1900), written and signed in blue ink "Maurice Rolland", in very fine condition. "Mon cher Bonnetain, Je vous remercie bien cordialement et je vous envoie ci-joint ma carte pour Hartmann. J`espere qu`il n`osera pas vous refuser les autres melodies dont probablement il n`a pas encore tire de nouvelles epreuves. Quant a l`Invitation au Voyage [de Baudelaire, qu`il avait mise en musique], elle n`a jamais ete publiee : le seul exemplaire manuscrit qui en existe est entre les mains de M. Perivier [codirecteur du Figaro] a qui je l`avais remise avec Le Jet d`eau [de Baudelaire]. Il me semble que demander 100 francs pour Les Cloches [poeme des Nevroses] n`a rien d`exagere. Si pourtant la chose paraissait telle, qu`on me donne alors le prix ordinaire de ces sortes de publications. Je compte bien que votre visite a Fresselines n`est que partie remise, et je vous envoie avec tous mes nouveaux remerciements une vigoureuse poignee de main. Bien a vous, Maurice Rollinat." Post-scriptum : "Au fond, je ne sais pas du tout ce que peuvent se payer ces sortes de publications musicales. Si 100 f. est trop ou pas assez, faites comme vous pourriez pour vous-meme : je vous laisse absolument libre de regler la chose comme vous l`entendrez." Translation: "My dear Bonnetain I thank you cordially and I send you herewith my card to Hartmann. I hope he will not dare refuse you other melodies which he probably has not taken new printed proofs. As for the Invitation au Voyage [Baudelaire poem, he had set to music], it has never been published : the only manuscript copy that exists is in the hands of Mr. Perivier [co-director of Figaro] who I had given with le Jet d`eau [other Baudelaire poem]. It seems to me that request 100 francs for Les Cloches [poem contained in Les Nevroses] is not extravagant. If however the thing seemed so, it then gives me the regular price of these kinds of publications. I look forward to your visit Fresselines is only postponed, and I send you with all my new thanks vigorous handshake. Sincerely, Maurice Rollinat. " Post-scriptum : "Actually, I do not know at all how much can be payed this kind of music publications. If 100 f. is too much or not enough, do as you would for yourself: I leave you absolutely free to resolve the matter as you think. "
