Tender letter card from the actress to her “chéri” Sacha Guitry

Je t’embrasse sur les joues d’Yvonne [Printemps].

Sacha Guitry was part of Sarah Bernhardt’s inner circle of friends. The actress performed her last role in La Voyante, a film by Guitry, and will not be able to finish it. She died of kidney failure on March 26, 1923 at the age of 78.
This letter is most likely dated after 1918, the year when Guitry and Yvonne Printemps meet. Sarah Bernhardt was their wedding witnesses in 1919, alongside Georges Feydeau.
