[To Madame Dubois D'Estaing]

Madame,




I regret very much that I can't accept your kind invitation. I am already engaged since a few days with one of my friends, and the worst is that this engagement was several times cancelled already so that I do not dare fail him once more. I shall come on Saturday, Madame, to thank you directly for remembering me.

   Please accept my
   respectful salutations

              Amaury-Duval
