Mary Ann Elisa Birch known as Elisa de Lamartine (1790-1863). Painter and sculptor.
Wife of the writer and poet Alphonse de Lamartine.

Letter written from the Château de Monceau and addressed to Mm. Larue, Dufour et Cie, wine merchants of Burgundy

“M. de Lamartine s'entretiendra volontiers avec M. Larue de la vente de ses vins qui ne sont point engagés encore comme son rhumatisme le retient jusqu'à 2 heures après midi dans son lit il prie M. Larue de ne venir à St Point que vers 3 heures”

The castle of Saint Point was bequeathed to Alphonse de Lamartine for his marriage in 1820 and remodelled by the poet in the Romantic Gothic style. It is still to this day furnished with its memories. The Château de Monceau in Prissé is the writer's other Burgundian residence, inherited in 1834
