The dated letter to an unidentified lady concerns her subscription to a concert series of the Paris conservatory and the closing of the conservatory's concert hall in Rue Bergère (Rue du Conservatoire). Viguier informs the recipient that he met his friend, the cellist and conservatory professor Hippolyte Rabaud, who assured him of the continuation of her subscription. He laments the closing of the concert hall, where he had been a "soloist and member of the society" for so long. Viguier doubts plans to reconstruct the concert hall on the site of military barracks: "Like you, I believe that we will never regain what we have lost".

Concerning a subscription to the concerts of the Paris conservatory. Viguier explains to the unnamed recipient that she needs to write to the cashier of the conservatory, the cellist Hippolyte Rabaud, to obtain a subscription, but also offers his wife's orchestra stall to her, as his wife now has a seat in a box. In the shorter second letter, Viguier arranges to transfer the subscription: "Je suis bien aise que la stalle d'orchestre de ma femme vous convienne. Elle vous est reservée et vous pourrez la faire prendre chez moi dès votre retour [...]". - Both letters with traces of former mounting, letter from 1897 showing some foxing.
