Important person
Paris. Fryderyk Chopin writes to George Sand: "Your letter amused me. I have known many bad days, but as for Bonjours [good days], I have never met any except for the everlasting candidate for the Academy, M. Casimir Bonjour. My improvised friend makes me think of one [music-lover] at Châteauroux, whose name I don’t know, and who told M. de Préaux how well he knows me. If this continues, I shall end by regarding myself as an important personage. So you are now quite absorbed in dramatic art. I am sure that your prologue will be a masterpiece, and that the rehearsals will give you much amusement; only don’t ever forget your wilchura, or your muse. It is cold here. […] I won’t forget (your flowers), your gardener’s bill. Take care of yourself, amuse yourself, be well, all of you."
Casimi Bonjour (1795-1856) – writer, author of light comedies.
