ALS, one page, 5 x 8, September 10, 1869. Letter written from Hauteville House, in full (translated): "I find, gentlemen, on my return to Guernsey, your letter of the third of August, which has been waiting for me for three months. Will my response get to you in time? I received your beautiful and gracious note. I was charmed and touched by it. I send to your children all my wishes for success." In very good condition, with scattered light toning, edge chipping, and a split to the bottom of the hinge. Hugo lived at Hauteville House in Guernsey during his exile from France, from 1856 to 1870, driven from his home by Napoleon III's coup of 1851.
