FAURE, Gabriel (1845-1924). French composer.
Autograph Letter Signed to Gustave Samazeuilh (1877-1967 composer, critic and author), 1 page 8vo, no place, ('1899' in pencil in another hand). With a translation. Apologising for the delay in thanking him for congratulations, and explaining the reason.
'The long journey from Oberammergau has deprived me of the pleasure of telling you earlier how touched I was by your affectionate congratulations and how grateful I am to you for the sympathy you showed me in the sad circumstances: I thank you for it with all my heart and I ask you to be kind enough to pass to Madame Samazeuilh all my respects ...'
