Thank you for your book, received yesterday. I read it with interest. I appreciated its [high] level of thought, its information and the comprehensive sympathy that it has for me: thus, it extraordinarily distinguishes itself from all the other texts concerning this subject.
Naturally, Lebovici's successors [Editions Ivrea] have not followed your thesis for the last two years! This quite confirms for me the obviousness of my preliminary judgment of them.
I now send you my most recent book and the recent re-edition of Memoires: you will find in them precisions or confirmations of several of the points that you discuss.
I would love to receive your thesis and one or two more copies of the book at this address.Quite cordially,
 Debord (Edizioni Tracce, Pescara). [Translator: eventually translated into English by Donald Nicholson-Smith.]
