Adrien Emmanuel Rouquette letter, 1860 May 6.

In this letter, Adrien Emmanuel Rouquette writes to Charles Gayarré expressing thanks for Gayarré's compliments of his work, remarking that compliments from such an accomplished writer are very encouraging. He expresses admiration for Gayarré's "History of Louisiana" and cites Gayarré's "Romance of the History of Louisiana: A Series of Lectures" as proof of a delicate sentiment and an indication to the poet of the rich Louisiana mind where he may go for inspiration. Rouquette closes with thanks for the tribute of sympathy Gayarré offers to his "eremitical muse" and offers in return his expression of esteem and affection.
