To an unidentified recipient, stating that the artist cannot visit because his sister, Annette-Octavie Corot Sennegon (1793-1874), and brother-in-law, Laurent-Denis Sennegon, are ill. Corot was hoping to travel to Arras and Douai for "la fete" to be held on 6 July, which may well have been Douai's Fêtes de Gayant, a tradition dating back to 1530, wherein wooden giants are paraded in the streets.
