Four pages in-8° on mourning paper. 16 October [1895 or 1896]. Degas tells the story of his brother-in-law."My dear sophie, you had kindness, and it didn't surprise me, to write to me that you had just softened your response to the poor lip. Your letter must have happened to him about with mine, which was, I fear, a little brutal. I always feel with emotion that you have kept something faithful and devoted to your old friends. It's because they were very unhappy without having ever deserved it. Fèvre's still in love with an idea. And he's been writing to me for about two or three times a month. He would like the Argentine government to decree the founding of a credit bank for entrepreneurs, following the model of the sub-count of entrepreneurs that exists here and where our friend rouart is engaged.
We build and we want to build a lot in buenos ayres. He hoped that the Argentines would take his idea into account and pay him for his initiative. The trust of the lip, you think, is always admirable.Say a lot to the poor attic. Needless to say, you must always believe in the affection of your old friend degas.
All my good memories to berthelot. The tone of the letter proves how much degas did not trust this brother-in-law, who, he said with annoyance, "has still loved an idea." Degas never saw his sister again, who died in Argentina in 1895 at the age of 53. Sophie niaudet-berthelot (1837-1907), niece of louis bréguet and wife of Marcellin berthelot, was the first woman buried in the pantheon.Consult our manuscripts The Autograph Gallery of Centuries specializes in the sale and expertise of autograph letters and manuscripts of the great personalities of past centuries.
