"Je vous envoyer, monsieur [...] une lettre que j'envoie aux électeurs.
Elle paraîtra demain. Si vous croyez qu'elle convienne à La Démocratie pacifi que, je vous en fais juge et serai charmé de la lire dans le journal où vous écrivez et dont j'ai souvent applaudi l'honnêteté sérieuse et intelligente. Il me semble que c'est l'heure pour tous les hommes de coeur et de probité de s'unir dans la commune pensée du bien public

   Victor Hugo"  


"I send you, monsieur [...] a letter which I am sending to the voters.
It will appear tomorrow. If you think it suits La Démocratie pacific, I will make you judge of it and will be delighted to read it in the journal where you write and whose serious and intelligent honesty I have often applauded. It seems to me that it is time for all men of heart and probity to unite in the common thought of the public good. [...]
