Dumas, Alexandre fils. Autograph letter signed, no date, no place. Alexandre Dumas, fils, 1824 – 1895 was the illegitimate son of Alexandre Dumas, author of The Three Musketeers. Dumas fils is best remembered for his plays, most notably La Dame aux camélias, known today as Camille, which Verdi adapted into La Traviata. Here, Dumas writes to a magazine publisher about the return of an unidentified and unfinished manuscript, as well as subscribing to his magazine: “I also asked you to leave at my house the subscription price for your magazine since its beginning, and to continue to send it to me with the receipts for renewal. I want to be one of your subscribers since I can’t be one of your editors.” Two and a quarter pages. Fine.
