Collection Overview

Collection comprises two letters written by Reybaud. Recipients include Virginie Ancelot and Paul Lacroix. Topics in the letter to Ancelot included Ancelot's interest in publishing an article in the newspaper LE CONSTITUTIONNEL, which was owned by Raybaud's husband; as well as the troubled state of Reybaud's novel writing. In an either playful or threatening letter to Lacroix, Reybaud asked whether he wished her to speak of his undefined "grande affaire" to M. [Adolphe?] Thiers, a contributor to LE CONSTITUTIONNEL; announced and commented on the amount she received in payment from a publisher; stated her wish to be traveling; and requested Lacroix to give her regards to his brother, whom she called a "parasite." Collection includes transcriptions of the letters.
