Charming billet by Edmond de Goncourt about a performance


“Mon cher ami,
Si vous venez déjeuner un de ces jours, ne venez pas jeudi, parce que je suis forcé d’assister à la représentation pour le bénéfice de Mme Crosnier.
Bien affectueusement,
Edmond de Goncourt”


Goncourt refers to a performance on May 30, 1895, at the Odeon, where the actress Irma Crosnier had been playing for more than forty years.
