Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Emmanuel mss., 1920-1933, are the letters of Marie Francois Maurice Emmanuel, 1862-1933, musicologist and composer. He affirms his interest to Charles Francois Therese Muteau, 1824-1920, editor, and to Parrain in being a naturalized Burgundian. To another correspondent, Hilaire Noel Sebastien Clement Janin, 1862- , author, he writes "...l'honneur de votre entree, pour 17 raison. La premiere est que nous n'avons pas de canons. Me dispenser - vous des 16 autres?" To another unidentified friend he replies "Je vous prie de croire que votre estime, votre affection, les temoignanges que vous n'en donnez, me sont plus precieux que le hochet dont on adorne mes 67 ... printemps!"

Three of the letters are written from 42 rue de Grenelle.
