"Dear Sir, I apologize again for not having been able to go see you the other morning and I have the audacity to ask you, if it is not too indiscreet, a little place for this afternoon . I applauded the BOURGOIS and burned to see TARTUFFE (I saw you play in Aix les Bains some 18 years ago)
If it is, so much the better! If it's no, well I'll go all the same ..
Your admirer "
(signed) Reynaldo HAHN
