"Mon cher Daudet,
J`ai lu votre livre avec intérêt, mais il y a un fond de découragement. C`est pour cela qu`il n`a pas eu le succès qu`il aurait pu avoir. Après tant d`événements pénibles et douloureux, on aime à oublier votre livre a la tristesse mais cela n`ote rien à son mérite et je suis sure que plus tard il sera lu avec grand intérêt. [...]"
