Writing as director of the Casino of Cannes to Elisabeth of Romania with congratulations on the bestowal of the title of Marquis on Marc de Favrat, which in Andre's opinion is well-deserved: "Je voudrais que vous disiez à son Altesse le Prince Marc que je suis heureux du beau titre que vous lui avez donné et qu'il mérite, j'en suis certain [...]". - Elisabeth of Romania (1894-1956), former Queen of Greece, settled in Cannes some years after her expulsion from Romania in 1947, when the Romanian People's Republic was proclaimed.

In France, she met the much younger aspiring artist Marc Favrat, who became her lover and whom she made her equerry and adopted in the year of her death. - With letterhead of the "Casino Municipal de Cannes"..
