[Victor HUGO]. Juliette DROUET

L.A.S. "Juju", June 30 Wednesday evening 5:00 am ½[1847, to Victor Hugo]; 4 pages in-8.
Nice letter of love reproaches. "You quickly slipped away in the shadow of your ten francs and the tasteless jokes you threw at my literature. You won't care about scientists like me to make fun of them. Come and sulk and especially that your romantic fantasies fall under my claw and you will see how I will express my opinion and I will express my enthusiasm. I'll teach you to disrespect a letter carrier of my quality. But above all, what I would like to teach you and remind you, old French peer that you are, is to love me. You seem to have forgotten this art of pleasure for too long and I would like to give you some good lessons on this subject.
I wouldn't even take anything from you for that, but you'd be free to give me gifts of your mugnificence. This is without prejudice to the backwards shirts of course, that even this lasts three days and that it is the last one today and that you must hurry to bring me the rest if you do not want to see yourself mercilessly refused and your natural generosity ignored. This would be very serious at a time of high bread prices and barometer variations. What does not change is your eternal refrain: - I even work in music it would be boring but with my bare ear it is annoying and I ask for a change of scenery. I am beginning to suspect the ten francs of complicity with you to deceive me and mystify me unworthily. Oh ! if I were sure of that [...] what good blows I would give you and how I would reveal all your attempts at corruption on me"...
