"... My dear Monsieur De Marsillac, Contrary to my fears, the week passed without my receiving the slightest complaint about my article, the title of which had been changed. On the other hand, Léon Daudet, in L "Action Francaise, Friday, kindly signaled my opinion by giving its editorial, judiciously, the title that I had adopted for my note. All is therefore for the best. Always entirely at your service, I beg you to believe, My dear Monsieur de Marsillac, with my cordial and most sincerely devoted sentiments...."
