1) 18 May 1911: Departs for Oxford, where he is to lecture. 2) 20 Sept. 1918, having returned from New York, to Alfred Rebelliau: an American magazine is waiting for an article on the religious movement in France. 3) 24 Sept. 1918, to Eugene-Louis Bouvier, thanking him for his book on "the psychic life of the entire insect [...] thoroughly, and in its purely mechanical reactions, and in its instinctive activity, and in its intelligent manifestations.

4) 17 March 1921, to the same, thanking him for his "beautiful book on the habits and metamorphoses of insects [...] I have a hard time representing to myself the intelligence at the origin of instinct". 5) 14 Nov. 1927, to President Raymond Poincaré, thanking him for sending "L'Union Sacrée", which shows that the Germans have "done everything to bring the war", that we have "done everything to avoid it", and that "makes us relive with singular intensity the tragic hours which preceded and immediately followed the declaration of war". - Includes a business card with 6 autograph lines..
