Typed letter signed, one page, 5,25 x 6,5 inch, `Librairie Gallimard` letterhead, Paris, 18.07.1952, in French, to Belgian resistance fighter Helene Jeant, who had probably sent him records from the Second World War, which she had survived in an institution as a supposedly insane person, signed in blue ballpoint ink "Albert Camus", attractively mounted (removable) for display with a photograph, shows Camus in a chest-up portrait (altogether 11,75 x 8,25 inch), with a horizontal letter fold and puncher holes to the left edge - in fine condition. "Madame, J’ai lu avec le plus grand interêt votre journal et je partage l’opinion de tous ceux qui vous ont dit qu’il s’agissait là d’un document exceptionnel. Je me suis renforcé en même temps dans l’opinion que mes commentaires n’y ajouteraient rien et qu’ils diminueraient au contraire la vérité et la simplicité de ces notations. Je vous renvoie donc votre manuscrit en vous priant d`agreer mes excuses et de croire, Madame, à mes sentiments très respectueux, Albert Camus" Translated: "Madame, I read your newspaper with the greatest interest and I share the opinion of all those who have told you that this is an exceptional document. At the same time, I strengthened myself in the opinion that my comments would add nothing to it and that, on the contrary, they would diminish the truth and simplicity of these ratings. I therefore return your manuscript to you, asking you to accept my apologies and to believe, Madam, in my very respectful feelings, Albert Camus"
