Coquelin, Alexandre, actor (1848-1909). Autograph letter signed ("Coquelin Cadet").

Paris, 16 July 1886.

8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium.


To an unidentified recipient, whose name was unfamiliar to Coquelin, thanking him for a letter and assuring him that the entire troupe would be glad to return to Trouville and perform there. It is difficult, he writes, to perform Chamillac: "[...] Il sera bien difficile de monter Chamillac. Trop de monde! [...]".

He further asks whether the receipient is not, perchance, the poet who published in the newspaper of Deauville, is named Docquois and is a fellow native of Boulogne-sur-mer? He once received verses from one M. Docquois, and if his correspondent is identical to that person, Coquelin would like to know.

The younger brother of the actor Benoît Constant Coquelin was, like him, a student of the Paris conservatory. He made his début at the Odéon and was a member of the Comédie-Française since 1868.

On stationery with embossed monogram "MG". In an old collector's envelope.
