To Marc Favrat with a bill over 300,000 francs for the burial of Princess Elisabeth of Romania, former Queen of Greece: "Je me permets de vous présenter ci-dessous la montant des frais occasionnés par l'enterrement de S. A. la Reine Elisabeth [...]".

Elisabeth of Romania (1894-1956) settled in Cannes some years after her expulsion from Romania in 1947, when the Romanian People's Republic was proclaimed. In France, she met the much younger aspiring artist Marc Favrat, who became her lover and whom she made her equerry and adopted in the year of her death. The last year of Elisabeth's life was characterised by financial worries and health issues.

With printed letterhead "Association Cultuelle Orthodoxe Russe Saint-Michel Archange" and stamp. Surface somewhat defective and scratched with several tiny holes and tears, some fingerstaining, dust-soiling and marks in red pencil.
