ALS in French, signed "Degas," one page, 4.25 x 5 self-contained mailing sheet, no date, but postmarked 1899. Letter to Madame Vivies reads, in full (translated): "Durand Ruel will I was told, only return next Monday. I am sorry about it, my dear Catherine because for my part, I do not see any other way." Address panel on reverse is filled out by Degas as well. In fine condition, with a central horizontal fold.
