from Guy Debord

To Gerard Voitey
16 May 1990
Dear Gerard:

In the marvelous change of tone in the Americans,[1] one sees the value of your lawyer.

I thank you for the books by Doeblin[2] and Dumontier. I still need 5 copies of the latter: I will give them out to people who were scandalized by the attempted censorship by those jealous degenerates.[3]
