Correspondence with a fellow member of the Académie des sciences morales et politiques, very likely the perpetual secretary Alfred de Foville, concerning Haussonville's functions within the academy and announcing absences. Two letters can be dated to 1910 based on their content, suggesting that the entire correspondence might be dated to that year. One of the datable letters is particularly interesting as Haussonville informs his correspondent of the jury's decision to award the Prix Tanesse, an extant triannual prize for the amelioration of the condition of women, to the Lyonnaise social catholic women's union organizer Marie-Louise Rochebillard (1860-1960): "Je suis chargé par la commission du prix Tanesse de proposer à l'Académie pour le prix Mad.elle Rochebillard, la fondatrice des Syndicats Lyonnais [...]".

- In the second datable letter, Haussonville excuses himself for a session of the academy as he was preparing an "homage at the academy" for the second volume of the "Discours du duc de Broglie. Volume II. Enseignement public"; a collection of essays on education policy by Haussonville's late uncle Abert de Broglie (1821-1901) that was published in 1910 by his cousin François-Marie-Albert de Broglie. - Seven letters on stationery with printed address. Well preserved. - Provenance: Foville collection..

Both to the economist Alfred de Foville, director of the library of the Monnaie de Paris, concerning medals. The probably earlier letter dated 15 June to thank Foville for informing him about two medals and announcing a visit at the Monnaie to see them: "Je vous prie de m'excuser si j'ai tarda si longtemps à vous remercier des renseignements si intéressants que vous avez bien voulus me faire parvenir. Je ne connaissais pas l'existence de ces médailles et je ne manquerai pas d'aller les voir [...]". - The letter card was to thank Foville for catalogues, presumably of medals, and to ask him for help with the sale of two medals. - On stationery with printed address.
