Letter to Suzette Lemaire, 20 May? 1895: "Kindly tell Madame your mother that I haven't had time to get the little story I wrote about her and about you published in a paper. (I tried La Patrie, and failed, and La Presse too.) [...] If she won't send it to Le Gaulois, I should be pleased if she would, as she offered to do, put me in touch with Le Gaulois so I can get them to publish a page of mine. Once they have taken two or three things of mine, I can easily slip them my little story about Mme Lemaire, who would then no longer be responsible for it."

   The story appears to have been lost.
