from Guy Debord

To Mr. Gerard Voitey[1]
Tuesday, 5 February 1991
Dear Gerard:

As Alice told you by telephone this past Thursday, it will be necessary for me to receive the dossier of the "Strategic and Historical Games Company"[2] as soon as possible.

Perhaps the strange people of the rue Saint-Sulpice[3] have laid their hands on it in addition to the rest. But you will render service to me by confirming this possible disappearance. I can see that we are headed for many sad lawsuits.

Nevertheless, I see myself fortunately restituted with the documents that were intended to illustrate volume II of Panegyric, and that were stolen from me, so uselessly, along with the manuscript.[4] I thank you for having made them listen to reason, at least on this point. They will understand the rest later on.

I reiterate to you the assurance of my recognition of your courageous mediation in this very sombre affair, along with our best wishes.

Guy Debord
