Beautiful letter on his wish, never answered, to enter the French academy.\I can not forget what you have been to me for a long time: devoted to the possible and quite apart from other publishers who, so probing and obliging as they are, are only typewriters. My life is a paradox. I had sincerely renounced, without regret, the academy, although, many years ago, an honest number of votes was granted after the grand prize of literature.
My principle, I can never be told you: it's never to try to force a door. I try to open it only if I feel it can give way. God, that high influences, of which that of bares, push me and acquire me, it may be that the Academy does not remember for me. No one in the world would be less disappointed than me in this case.I only ask Providence to guide me without leaning in one direction or the other except that of my salvation. Do you remember one evening when I was introduced to the mercury offices by Henry Battle?
