This terrible event has finally come like a surprise to all of us: unexpected and almost unbelievable.
If you can come to my place Thursday at 4 pm, I will naturally count upon you to explain what Floriana desired and what you yourself think about the future of her unfortunate publishing house. You certainly can tell: I do not believe that I can speak with anyone else.Addressing to you our sorrowful greetings,
 The death of Floriana Lebovici [of cancer, at the age of 50].
