DOUGLAS (Alfred, amant d'Oscar Wilde). L.A.S.,…

DOUGLAS (Alfred, amant d'Oscar Wilde). L.A.S., slnd, 1 p. in-8 oblong, écrite en anglais, à Madame d’Avilla (Francis d'Avilla, pseudonyme de Fabienne HYLLIARD, fille de l'écrivain Léon Brethous-Lafargue et épouse du champion de cricket et de tennis Jack Hylliard, elle traduisit certains des poèmes d'Alfred Douglas en français) :


« My dear Madame d’Avilla, The translation of my sonnet which you have done is astonishingly good. It is remarkable how closely you have kept the sense of my words clothing them with beauty which is quite as much yours as mine. I feel deeply flattered that you should have taken so much trouble to render into French the work of the poor poet who is so much abased & calomniated in France. I feel better & have juste had tea & one of Miss Toupie's(?) beautiful pears. A bientôt I hope. […]"
