[author's holograph], Nice. 1963, Two letters; the first dated 3 Janvier 1963 on Hotel d'Angleterre stationery, one leaf, one side, twelve lines in French signed by Barney at bottom with a postscript greeting from Mrs. Romaine Brooks-Goddard (written by Barney) in left margin. the second dated 30 Decembre 1963 one leaf, two sides, headed in cursive Hotel d'Angleterre, Nice, nineteen lines in cursive French signed by Barney, and a postscript in English concerning the recent arrival of Romaine Brooks-Goddard and initial "NCB", fold crease on both otherwise very good. Appear to be simple notes to friends (unnamed) or neighbors. Mostly indecipherable as Ms. Barney's handwriting is quite shaky and rushed. Two names are mentioned, Madams, unreadable. Barney was an expatriate American in Paris who held a literary salon for sixty years and lived her life openly as a lesbian. She is the inspiration for such novels as "The Well of Loneliness" by Radclyffe Hall and was a poet, playwright and novelist. The Romaine Brooks mentioned in the postscripts was her longtime lover and partner, an artist famous for her dark and brooding portraits of artists, writers and socialites, quite often women in male attire.
