Magnificent document enriched with an original bartholdi drawing illustrating its fountain. Inspector General of Bridges and Roads in charge of the municipal burgundy service.Inspector, I haveten to inform you in response to your very words. [Letter] dated May 13, that I assumed all the assizes of the fountain largely pierced; but only for the passage of the pipes. We will arrange for the bronzes so that they can be easily disassembled.
By means of nuts which would attach them to rods sealed in the stone, both for lion heads and for the horns of abundance which end up two small pipes that cast the water. I am of the opinion that it is always useful to make these bronzes easy to. Demonstrate for cases of repairs.
When the time comes, sir, you will give me your advice and I will have the stone executed accordingly. Please accept, Sir, the assurance of my very distinguished feelings. This letter seems to be related to the fountain officially named "the rivers and the springs going to the ocean" now located place of the earths, at lyon, and more commonly known as bartholdi fountain.

The inauguration took place on 22 September 1892.
