4 pages, 8vo; the second n.d. [2 or 3 February 1915], saying that he can write only a few words to express his regret that he was out when Lucien's letter came and returned too late to reply; he is enclosing the letter he wrote two days ago, one page, 8vo (blank integral leaf)." /> PROUST, Marcel. Two autograph letters signed ('Marcel' and 'Marcel Proust') to Lucien Daudet, <I>both n.p. [Paris]</I>, the first <I>n.d. [30 or 31 January 1915]</I>, expressing his regret at news that Lucien has been ill, and saying that he himself has been unable to write to him because he was exhausted after a <I>soirée</I>; then Céleste was tired, then he was even more unwell. He supposes, with irony, that Lucien received his letter of a month ago sent to Tours, 'Au fond l'habitude: "J'ai bien reçu votre honorée du" est bien apaisante'. There is a multitude of things to say but as they do not conduct a 'correspondance' it is difficult to begin, <I>4 pages, 8vo</I>; the second <I>n.d. [2 or 3 February 1915]</I>, saying that he can write only a few words to express his regret that he was out when Lucien's letter came and returned too late to reply; he is enclosing the letter he wrote two days ago, <I>one page, 8vo</I> (blank integral leaf). | Christie's
