Title:Eugène Dumez letter, 1864 March 2

Letter from Eugène Dumez, St. Just, France, to Henry Vignaud returns to the Martin affair. Dumez tries to cheer Vignaud, reminding him of literary and political possibilities and still encouraging him to see Chavanne and Rameau. He refers again to Duval as editor of the Journal des Economistes. He states that Slidell and his associates do not appreciate Vignaud as they should and criticizes their approach. Dumez relates learning from the Renaissance that St. Paul has encouraged Confederate Congressman Lucius J. Duprs founding a newspaper in Paris on the order of the Index. He gives his opinion of the Revue Nouvelle and mentions the Renaissance, Meschacb, and Autographe. Dumez refers to a smallpox outbreak, which has affected his wife. He asks if the letter from Jonathan Slingsby to Robert J. Walker published in London and mentioned in the Renaissance is by Slidell. He extends his best to Boulet and mentions the Mmorial. In French.
