Arnould-Plessy, Jeanne Sylvanie Sophie, French actress (1819-1897). Autograph letter signed.

N. p., [ca. 1845-1854].

8vo. 1 p. on bifolium.


To a friend named Madame Chambéry, asking her to remit a package to a third person named Eugène and sending greetings to the recipient's husband: "M.lle Tahon a la bonté de se charger d'un paquet que j'envoie à Eugène et que je vous prie de lui faire remettre. J'ai à peine le temps de vous embrasser et de vous dire que mon mari et moi nous conservons bien bon souvenir des instants que nous avons passés près de vous et de M.r Chambéry".

The letter can be dated with respect to Arnould-Plessy's marriage to Auguste Arnould (1803-54), as she mentions her husband. This period was marked by her withdrawal from the Comédie-Française and her triumphant engagement at the Théâtre-Français in St. Petersburg, where she was a favourite of Emperor Nicholas I. In 1855, Arnould-Plessy returned to Paris and was re-admitted to the Comédie-Française as a pensionnaire, seamlessly continuing her career until her retirement from the stage in 1876.

Traces of folds. Somewhat creased. With minor tears and very light foxing.
