VERDI, Giuseppe (1813-1901)

Autograph letter signed « GVerdi » to M. Cartier
Busseto, 25th July 1898, 1 p. in-8° on laid bi-folio paper

Verdi sends his signature to his correspondent


« Mon cher Monsieur Cartier,
N’ayant pas depuis longtemps entendu parler de l’affaire Mollien, je vous avais écrit hier. Aujourd’hui je viens de recevoir votre billet, et je m’empresse de vous envoyer la signature que vous me demandez.
Recevez mes compliments distingués
GVerdi »


We will notice the hesitant writing of Verdi, here in the last years of his life. He was to die three years later at the age of 87.

Verdi’s letters written in French are rather uncommon.
