Typed letter signed, 1 page, 8,25 x 10,5 inch, Paris, 14.10.1958, in French, reply letter to author Felix Bonafe - Massignon informs his correspondent about his return from the ninth International Congress of History of Religions in Tokyo and about an amount for the disposal of Bonafe, signed by Louis Massignon in black ink, with intersecting letter folds and mild creases - in fine condition. In parts (translated): "You have misunderstood my silence. Your letter of a month ago was written at the moment that I was still in the Far East, returning from the ninth International Congress of History of Religions in Tokyo, making stops in Saigon and Angkor. As soon as I returned I had to go twice to the country and then return to Italy for the Mediterranean Colloqium in Florence. Yes, I have the money at your disposal, if it can still be useful; but why did you not phone, which would have allowed me to explain to you some details of your letter which was otherwise very persuasive..."
