French essayist, novelist & dramatist – elected to the Académie française. Autograph letter signed, one page, 8 x 10 inch, 8.06.1933, in French, to Gerard de Catalogne – Henry de Montherlant writes about Francois Mauriac, written and signed in dark ink “Montherlant”, with intersecting letter folds, puncher holes at the left edge and scattered mild stains – in nearly fine condition. Mon cher confrere, Plusieurs raisons m`empechent d`acceder a votre demande malgre mon admiration et mon amitie pour Mauriac, vieille de vingt ans. Je parle assez longuement de lui dans un de mes prochains livres, et ce que je dirais ferait double emploi; je suis oblige de me consacrer a un travail dont je ne puis en rien me distraire jusqu`au 1er octobre; et enfin ne pensez-vous pas que votre numero aurait plus de poids s`il etait l`uvre d`hommes de votre age et de ses cadets seulement? Ceux de ma generation ont deja dit maintes fois l`estime qu`ils avaient pour Mauriac. Bien a vous Montherlant. Translation: My dear colleague, Several reasons prevent me from accessing your request despite my admiration and friendship for Mauriac, twenty years old. I speak a lot about him in one of my next books, and what I would say would be redundant; I have to devote myself to a job which I can not in any way distract me until October 1; and finally, do not you think your journal issue would be more intense if it was made by writers of your age and only his younger? Those of my generation have already said many times the esteem they had for Mauriac. Our Identification Number: 6008461.
