- A L.A.S. from Victor Hugo to Marie Dorval, creator of the role of Catarina (2 pages in-8): I am lost, Madam, your letter charms me and distresses me at the same time How can you say that! You played Jane! [...] Fortunately, if you want it, Angelo is there, that is to say the revenge, the revenge for you, for me, for everybody, because it is everybody who is dazzled when you shine. [...] I lay Angelo and myself at your feet.
- A L.A.S. from Marie Dorval (one page in-8): I had a little accident at home which obliges me to write to you with my left hand [...], my right hand was burned, I cannot play tonight, that is what hurts me most [....], Mr. Josselin must have Angelo delayed.
