In French, to the poet Luc Decaunes, relating in part to Decaunes's magazine "Soutes": "[...] I have received Soutes and thank you for it, interesting issue, uneven, and found it better to reread the poem by Nigg Louis Guillaume, weak but very sympathetic, we'll do something with this boy there but that he doesn't believe it's already happened. [...] Everything military is suspect, the pseudo-peaceful language which here is used against the army of peace, against the army of workers and peasants, and which he unreservedly assimilates to the army of war to that of capital, it is in fact the very language of the 'comrade anarchist, traitor to the proletariat'" (transl.).
