Description: Pierre-Jean de BERANGER (1780-1857). 22 L.A.S., 1852-1855, [à la poétesse Malvina BLANCHECOTTE] ; 40 pages formats divers.
BELLE CORRESPONDANCE AMICALE ET LITTERAIRE. 16 juin 1852. " Il y a peu de jours, j'ai fait mes adieux à MICHELET et à sa femme, partant pour aller se réfugier dans un coin de la Bretagne, où ils se figurent pouvoir vivre plus économiquement qu'à Paris. J'ai vu aussi le logis de la famille HUGO, dévasté par la proscription. Et ce qui est plus triste, c'est au milieu de ces misères l'absence de toutes les prétendues grandes amitiés dont on faisait tant de bruit dans le monde "… 20 septembre, il demande des nouvelles de LAMARTINE ; il a appris " que vous teniez un journal de tous vos faits et gestes "… [1852] : " il faut aussi que je travaille, malgré mes 92 ans ou pour mieux dire, parce que j'ai 72 ans et qu'il me faut corriger et mettre au net le peu que je laisserai après moi "… 8 janvier [1853 ?] : " Je vous envoie l'Oncle Thom et les contes de CHAMPFLEURY "… 25 février, malgré un salaire modique, il conseille " de tenir bon du côté où vous ont forcé d'aller vos mécomptes passés. La bohème littéraire ne vous valait rien "… 4 mai [1855 ?]. Il va quitter la barrière d'Enfer pour le quartier Beaujon : " il m'a fallu aller choisir mon gîte et je me suis juché au 5ème. Ne sera-ce pas un peu haut pour votre pauvre cœur ? "… Dimanche matin : " Vos vers me semblent bien beaux et bien touchans. Diable de poésie ! Elle me fait toujours peur pour vous "… Jeudi soir : " Oubliez un moment vos vers pour écouter la raison, dans l'intérêt de votre mari et de votre enfant "… Samedi. " Lam. [LAMARTINE] m'est venu voir, il y a deux jours : il m'a paru plus satisfait de la marche de ses affaires "… 31 décembre : " J'ai parlé de vous avec Mme COLET "… Mardi soir, sur un entretien avec LAMARTINE… Vendredi : " Vous êtes une terrible écriveuse "… Etc.
