Custine Gratien Ermenonville Mortefontaine Chantilly
Marquess Astolphe de Custine proposes to Fryderyk Chopin a several days long trip around Paris vicinity, as "beneficial for health". "I know you like pictures, I have sent you the prettiest I managed to find. In the first spare moment I will come to you to present my project for the time when I expect you to come to Saint-Gratien. We would like to spend several days of those you dedicate to us to travel around Paris vicinity in order to visit Ermenonville, Mortefontaine, Chantilly and we think that this trip will be beneficial for your health and for us it will be a pleasure to go on it in your company. I would like this project to be equally appealing to you as it is to me, and as we are waiting for good weather, please accept new thanks for the favour you have done and the assurance of the highest respect for you."
