"Monsieur G. Eiffel - Paris 1 Rue Rubelais

   Je vous remercie beaucoup de vos très aimables envois du 3. et du 12. Décembre qui me sont bien parvenns.
   Votre libre sur la résistance m`a au plus haut degrès interessé. Cependant j'ai trouvé difficile de faire une distinction nette entre les bonnes et les mauvaises expériences. Je crois du reste que les résultats des instituts comme le vôtre et celui de Göttingue sont dignes de pleine confiance.
   J'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir des belles photographies surtout de celle qui / montre votre portrait.
   Veuillez agréer, Monsieur, l`assurance de mes sentiments très distingués.

      Avon Parseval"


   Thank you very much for your very kind mailings of December 3rd and 12th which have reached me.
   Your book on resistance interests me at the highest degree. However I found it difficult to distinguish clear between good and bad experiences. I believe, moreover, that the results of Institutes like yours and that of Göttingen are worthy of full confidence.  
I've had a lot of pleasure of the beautiful photographs especially of the one which shows your portrait.
   Please accept, Sir, the assurance of my very distinguished sentiments.
