Autograph letter signed "edmond de goncourt" to a lady saint gratien, 21 7bre [September] 90, 2 p. In-8 on bifeuillet traces of folds and wettings. Goncourt gives news about his entourage and his literary circle. Ah, I'm guilty of you and I'm blaming myself for it, but forgive me, I've worked so hard, wanting to roughly prepare two volumes of my diary, to try to move on to other exercises, that I didn't feel like I was after the work of the copy, the courage to write. After my stay at [alphonse] daudet, I spent about twenty days with my beautiful little cousin whom was kind enough with me this year, and I was returning with the intention of going to daudet's place where a party was to take place for the engagement of the Lockroy and Hugo, but isn't it all in the water?[Julia] Daudet became ill, forced to keep the rest in bed and I no longer know whether the party will take place and whether I will go to their house. In this moment I am in Saint-Gratian where I was sick like a dog in the first days and if I did not work all day, I would bother mainly.
And I don't know anything, except that mme strauss [sic] who does sport and turf in the cities of water poured meilhac, that m. John lemoine lives from the happy life of a vegetable in the vicinity of dieppe, that the father [jules] zeller was fortunately apurated from the stone, and that the dear lady took advantage of this to expect my sensitivity and seek to make her give back love. And you dear lady, will you come back, fat, healthy, pink-colored spirit. Your affectionate edmond of goncourt." The goncourt paper remains an interesting testimony about the second part of xix.
Until his death in 1870, jules was the main author of the newspaper, followed by edmond, who remained alone. Subtitled memoirs of literary life, it consists of a set of notes, usually brief, taken on a day-to-day basis. A close friend of alphonse daudet (and of the naturalist circle), the two writers frequent themselves very regularly throughout their lives. On 16 July 1896 he died at the house of daudet à draveil.
