[AUTOGRAPH]. D'ORLÉANS, Élisabeth Charlotte, Duchess of Lorraine.
[Letter, signed, to an unknown recipient].Lunéville, 21 March 1738. Folded leaf (32 x 20.5 cm). In French. With 3 blind-stamped seals.
A letter signed by Élisabeth Charlotte d'Orléans, Duchess of Lorraine (1676-1744), discussing her youngest daughter Anne Charlotte's election as Abbess of Remiremont (Vosges, France). Apparently the Duchess had recommended her daughter for the title of Abbess in a previous letter. Anne Charlotte, though, had not yet reached the required age of 30, and had not been a Canoness for at least six weeks. In the current letter her mother applies for exemption from these articles. The Duchess did not write in vain: stepping into the footsteps of her older sister Élisabeth Charlotte, Anne Charlotte was elected Abbess on 10 May 1738.In fine condition.
