We have no attitudes in common, and we won’t for as long as you support such ideas about the individualist genius.
Personally, I believe in rational arguments: it is Sindbad who doesn’t. I do not believe in solitude: it is Anstryn who is alone. I do not believe in the importance of a person beyond his actions: it is Iris and Gurdjieff who do.
In such conditions, I can only say that I am not “annoyed” with you, but I do not know to what extent such a determination would interest either one of us.Cordially,
 Translator: Sindbad Vail, son of Peggy Guggenheim.
 Translator: Anstryn Wainhouse, a translator with Olympia Press and later an editor of Merlin.
 Iris Clert, a gallery owner.
 Gurdjieff, a superficial guru.
