Title:Eugène Dumez letter, 1864 March 16

Letter from Eugène Dumez, St. Just, France, to Henry Vignaud thanking Vignaud for sending the Autographe and the Revue. He reports receiving letters from Lefranc (whom the addresser views as overly optimistic) and Lematre that are encouraging for Louisiana (if not for the South) because they relate that civil government is going to replace military rule in the state. He proposes bringing back the Meschacb and taking over the Renaissance. Dumez envisions writing a history of Louisiana with preparatory work done in the fashion of Franois-Pierre-Guillaume Guizots and Jean-Joseph-Franois Poujoulats studies. He spells out the ways in which Vignaud could work with Dumez in future endeavors. Dumez mentions Gurards bibliography. He asks Vignaud to see A. Callaud of 41 Rue St. Georges for Lieutenant Lefort of the Catinat. He mentions Rameau and brings up the Martin affair. In French.
