from Guy Debord

To Mr Thierry Levy
Arles, 17 November 1984
Dear Sir:

I have just received your check from the CARPA[1] and I thank you for it.

I am surprised that Minute has dared to appeal, but it is no doubt necessary to expect everything and anything from this rag. I hope that you will again crush them.

With regard to the insertions, I wish to at first see the ensemble of the texts. I confess that I am disappointed by the weak logic and the lax style of the grounds for the first two judgments. They are assuredly inferior to the [legal] grounds of the First International, which bore witness, one says, to the legal spirit of the French workers of the time.

Do you not find worrisome the most recent blackmail and racketeering attempts made against Floriana [Lebovici]?[2]

Hoping to see you again soon, I ask you to believe, dear Sir, the expression of my best wishes.

Guy Debord
