To the composer Jules Massenet (1842-1912), asking him to visit the following day, as he is in a hurry to thank him in person, refusing to do so by writing on "plain carton": "Venez donc, demain samedi, vers 3h, me voir un instant. Si cela ne vous dérange pas. J'ai vraiment - vous en pourriez douter, mais cela n'est pas, je vous expliquerai - grand hâte de vous remercier, et je le voulais faire autrement que sur un carton banal […]". - Small traces of former mounting; a vertical crease.
