Biographical notes:

Jeanne Julie Éléonore de Lespinasse (b. Nov. 9, 1732, Lyon, France–d. May 23, 1776, Paris, France) was a French salon holder and letter writer. She moved to Paris in 1754 to live with Aunt, Marie Anne de Vichy-Chamrond, marquise du Deffand, who had a well known salon that attracted diplomats, politicians, aristocrats, and philosophers. Lespinasse set up her own Salon in 1764 and attracted the same types of people. She is well known for her letters published posthumously in 1809. They describe thwarted love for 2 men: Don José y Gonzaga, Marquis de Mora and Jacques-Antoine-Hippolyte, Comte de Guibert.
