Autograph letter signed "Anne" to duke Antoine de Gramont. Paris, November 22, 1650. 1 p. 1/2 in-4, address on the back with armorial seals of black wax and brown silk lakes.
"My cousin, I was very pleased to see by the letter you wrote me, and by the care you had to send me this gentleman to learn news of my health, that I was not mistaken in the belief I had that the news of my indisposition would touch you as much as anyone; I thought I was quite well at Fontainebleau, but since I have been here I have had a slight illness which forced the doctors to make me bleed and to make me use some remedies which I am still using at present. The sr. de St-Pé will tell you more particularly the state in which he leaves me. However, I ASK YOU TO CONTINUE YOUR AFFECTION, and beg you to believe that I am as much as can be your good cousin Anne... ".
