To the French journalist and cinema writer Georges Sadoul: "Monsieur A. B. lui-même s'est en allé de la rue Fontaine pour Avignon. Pour tous renseignements s'adresser galerie Goemans. Là-dessus je dois te dire confidentiellement que la confiance ne régnant pas tu seras vraisemblablement seul autorisé par une clef et une lettre que tu recevras à faire ce que Breton et Eluard t'écriront rue Becquerel [...]" (transl: "Mr. A. B. himself went from rue Fontaine to Avignon. For all information contact galerie Goemans.

On this subject I must tell you confidentially that the confidence that does not reign will probably only be authorized by a key and a letter that you will receive to do what Breton and Eluard will write to you on rue Becquerel [...]"). - Somewhat wrinkled and small damage to edges..

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.).
