Charles Gounod in Paris - 11 December, 1853

from Musical Memories, page 196:

My dear Camille: I was officially informed yesterday that you are the author of the symphony which they played on Sunday. I suspected it; but now that I am sure, I want to tell you at once how pleased I was with it. You are beyond your years ; always keep on and remember that on Sunday, December 11, 1853, you obligated yourself to become a great master. Your pleased and devoted friend, CH. GOUNOD.
