COMMENTS
Comments:  This letter, addressed to "Madame Castaing, rue d'Enfer nº 91", is probably intended to be read by the whole family (Castaing writes in the plural to "Mes bons amis"). It is written one or two days after the Paris Assize Court returned its verdict, and two weeks before Castaing was executed.
