My dear, I expected to see you, so I didn't answer you (...).

Calligraphy and Old French do not allow us to precisely transcribe what Alexandre Dumas wrote. However, we can deduce that he is writing to a friend, perhaps a writer too, since he talks about his lack of time and his "daily consumption", probably of books, as Dumas loved to read.

Alexandre Dumas (father, 1802 - 1870), French writer, began publishing in magazines and also writing some plays. Later, already famous, he dedicated himself to writing historical chronicles and novels, always with lots of adventure and battles, finding immense success with the French and European public. His best-known works in Brazil are "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "The Three Musketeers". His son, Alexandre Dumas (son), was also a writer.

"The Three Musketeers" is a historical novel released in 1844. The first part of a trilogy, it tells the adventures of the three friends Athos, Porthos and Aramis during the reigns of kings Louis XIII and Louis XIV and the Regency that was established in France between both governments.

Because he wrote two of the most popular works in France, Alexandre Dumas' documents are highly appreciated by French collectors. This note, with Dumas's typical handwriting and beautiful signature, constitutes a very interesting piece.
