    Adele Victor Hugo Autograph Note Signed "Adele Victor Hugo." Two pages, 4" x 5.25", np, July, 25th. This note is written entirely in French and is untranslated. Adele Hugo was Victor's wife whom he loved passionately all his life, as is evident from many famous and popular love letters. One of which reads in part, "When two souls, which have sought each other for, however long in the throng, have finally found each other…a union fiery and pure as themselves are…begins on earth and continues forever in heaven…This is the love which you inspire in me…your soul is made to love with purity and passion of angels; but perhaps it can only love another angel, in which case I must tremble with apprehension."
    The letter is in fine condition; usual folds are present; slight brittleness has set in, pencil notations present. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
