     M. Glinel's collection included the letter of thanks written by M. Legouvé to Dumas. It was upon black-edged notepaper, and worded as follows :—
     "My Dear Dumas, I knocked at your door to thank you for your verses, which were shown to me four days ago, but you were absent hunting. Leaving for the country to-day myself, I do not wish to await your return in order to thank you, and send you by letter my best compliments. I am very proud at having inspired those fine strophes. Wholly yours, LEGOUVÉ."
