Autograph letter signed, dated : London, 12 August 1854, to [Léon?] Escudier, 1854 Aug. 12.

Expressing regret that Mlle Goddard did not engage M. Gouffier, but not having heard from Belloni and not being able to wait longer, she has left that day for Bade, where she is engaged by Bénazet, saying that he will have heard the decision of the Chambre des Pairs (House of Lords) concerning foreign composers--the works of Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, and Mercadante are now at the mercy of pirates--, that it is only Prussian, Saxon, and French composers who are protected by the treaties of 1846 and 1852, that those treaties do not affect publications before those dates: thus, [Meyerbeer's] Huguenots, Robert [le diable], all of Auber's operas, and all the works of Chopin, Thalberg, Doehler, Bériot are "du domaine," that Austrian, Italian, and Spanish composers must live in England for a few months before their rights are protected, telling Escudier to be on his guard in his future dealings with Ricordi, etc.

By 1831, Spontini's reputation has lost ground to the works of younger men, including Meyerbeer, whose Robert le Diable was first performed eight month after the date of this letter; this is perhaps the opera mentioned here, though Meyerbeer may be referring to the abortive Le Portefaix, the contract for which he had just signed. Despite the apparent warmth of their relationship, Spontini was already jealous. His own continuing lack of success he attributed to a plot orchestrated by Meyerbeer, "...
