L.H. Wiener - Typed letter to the Haarlem District Court, dated (18-2-79) and signed (“Wiener”) - 1 sheet of unlined paper 29.5 × 21 cm - 48 lines, only recto - with 3 handwritten deletions - the letter is folded once lengthwise and widthwise, has two staple holes at the top left and 2×2 perforated holes at the centre left, otherwise good - with (cheerful) envelope

In the playfully sarcastic letter, Wiener writes (types) that he will not obey an order for payment, because he has already paid (as proof of which he sends a photocopy of a bank statement).
Enclosed are a request for an injunction and an order for payment.

It was not Wiener's first clash with the justice system. In 1967 his first collection of short stories, Seizoenarbeid, had to be withdrawn from the market by order of the court, because the owner of a beach pavilion in Zandvoort thought he saw himself portrayed in one of those stories in a way that did not match his self-image, and filed a complaint. In a reprint, his name was changed to that of the writer, “Wiener”.

Lodewijk Willem Henri Wiener (Amsterdam, 16 February 1945), initially writing under the name Lodewijk, Lodewijk-Henri Wiener or Lodewijk Henri Wiener, but since 1980 publishing as L.H. Wiener, is a Dutch prose writer. Wiener was also an English teacher at the Stedelijk Gymnasium in Haarlem. (Wikipedia)
