In this Autograph Letter Signed in 1858, while working on her famous book “She and He,” Sand writes in French in part: "..I don't have time to see you tonight, and I await the letter of Montigny, who will tell me when he will come. But I want to assure you about your manuscript, which I have reread and of which I am very happy." Signed "G. Sand" . She adds a seven line post script, "inquiring news about the little Tittine" , then she adds "the little peri-Gois is saved. I kiss Eugenie and all of your family. Happy New Year to all.."

Elle et Lui would become Sand's vehicle for recounting her tumultuous affair with Alfred de Musset. Letter is on her Personal embossed stationary.
