Autograph letter signed ("Th. Fontane").
Large 8vo. 2 pp. on double leaf.
To an unidentified recipient, about the correct pronunciation of "Archibald Douglas", the main character of his like-named ballad (he "most decidedly" favours 'Ar-khi-bald Doo-glass'), and of his own name (as in French, rather than the germanised forms "Fóntan, Fontáne, Fontané").
Not recorded in the edition of Fontane's letters.
Foldings with small tears.
