Poetic letter to an unnamed recipient, explaining that he had "renounced in an absolute manner performing music as an amateur this winter" but not having denied himself the pleasure of "doing so as an artist". - Émile Norblin's father Louis-Pierre Norblin (1781-1854) had been a cello teacher at the Paris Conservatoire, where his students included Charles Lebouc, Auguste Franchomme and Louis-Marie Pilet. Louis-Pierre started the art collection that his son Émile continued. Émile Norblin published sheet music throughout his life, mostly arrangements for cello and piano but also original compositions. - With traces of former mounting and some browning to the upper border.
