Description
- VARIN (Charles VOIRIN, known as Victor), French playwright (NANCY (54) 1798 - Paris 1869). 9 autograph LETTERS signed between 1840 and 1860 to his dear DESNOYERS, to M. LUBIN Bld du temple, to M. BECK Éditeur, to M. ROUSSEAU Régisseur, to M. ARNOL, to M. LUBIZE, etc? "My dear DESNOYERS. I took on the task, at your request, to report on the Vaudevilles of the Theatre of the Porte St Martin, and I am surprised to read today in the newspaper, an article which is not mine on the Pièce d'Urbain le Manant, although mine must have been given to you. If you had given this theatre to another Editor, it seems to me that it would have been easy and proper to warn me of this change. But it is best not to be embarrassed, it is the politeness of the CENTURY. In any case, I have a request to make to you on my return. Instead of being paid item by item, which, thanks to cuts, trimmings, reductions and deductions, is brought to zero. As a result, I would like, to escape the arithmetic of the CENTURY, to have a fixed amount of money that I can count on. I leave it to you to determine... April 20th".
