A short note by the novelist and playwright Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) sending a theatre ticket and arranging to meet the unknown recipient at the Comédie-française (‘theatre francais’) at midday the following day. He says that he will do whatever he can to obtain a small box at the Théâtre Déjazet: ‘Je vais faire tous ce que je pourrai pour avoir une petite loge a Déjazet: venez vousmême demain a midi au theatre francais et attendez moi là’.

The Théâtre Déjazet, on the boulevard du Temple, opened under that name on 27 September 1859, having previously been the Folies-Nouvelles.
