Autograph copy of a letter from victor hugo to a. Hugo thanks cuvillier-fleury for his article published in the newspaper of debates about the wretched, while challenging again napoleon iii. "Sir, and former friend, let me not call you otherwise, regardless of the difference in our points of view; I have just read your remarkable article of April 29th, remarkable, I explain on the spot my thought, by the talent and loyal elevation of literary criticism.Thank you, and allow me to combine an observation with my thanks. This article would be excellent at all points under a regime of freedom; it is political, social and philosophical discussion, controversable without any doubt, but perfectly legitimate, for example, under the liberal reign of louis-philippe. Perhaps this discussion, to which no free reply is possible, has under the current regime disadvantages that you would be the first to regret and deplore. The closing of the debate can be brutally made by censorship and the police, and writers such as you have no need of these auxiliaries. I know the delicate nobility of your mind, I do not regret any of the hand shakes that we have exchanged, and here it is to my colleague that I speak cordially and with my deepest sympathy.
You have one of those feathers that easily heals the wounds they make. Perhaps in the continuation of your appreciation, you will just judge to cover a little, even from the literary point of view, this book which is in good faith. And you will honour yourself by proving to the unscrupulous and unscrupulous power of this regime, that writers do not hand over writers to him.
I finish, sir, as I began, with my outspoken hand and renewing you for so many excellent passages of your article, my sincere thanks. Please receive the expression of my old and unalterable cordiality. The absent are entitled only to forget, yet allow me to put at the feet of your noble and charming wife, my eagerness and my regret".
