June 9, 1953

My dear Sir:

Though I have not heard further from you following my letter of May 25th and the sending of the supplementary photographs, which I do hope you also received, I thought I should send you another few lines.

I; namely, had to change anew my flying program and instead of arriving in Europe this weekend, June 12th, I do not expect now to reach Paris before the end of the following week. As I suggested a tentative appointment with you on June 15th I do not want you to be holding up any of your plans on my account. In view of all this uncertainty, which I greatly deplore, I deem it more considerate to wait until I have actually reached Paris to communicate with you and then set an appointment convenient to you.

I assume I could reach you by telephone from Paris and shall avail myself of such facilities, if they exist.

With renewed regrets for this seeming lack of coordination, of which I am the first victim, and looking forward to seeing you soon and with best personal greetings,

Sincerely yours,
(Germain Seligman)
