Upon returning to Arles, I found your letter of 12 July. I congratulate you and thank you for this first victory. I do not doubt that we will have equal success later on. I suppose that such a bad case will abstain from appealing.
When can we make use of the text of the judgment? With respect to the publications to be chosen, can you indicate to me how many lines correspond to the 7,000 franc penalty? Can we choose a weekly as well as a daily? The only point that in fact matters to me is that Le Monde must in no way figure among the list of titles chosen for these diverse publications.
I ask you to believe, dear Sir, in the expression of my best wishes.Guy Debord
 On 12 July 1984, Le Journal du dimanche was condemned for its insults and defamations [of Guy Debord] by the 17th Criminal Court.
 Translator's note: such publications would be required to print the text of the judgment issued against them.
 Translator's note: See letter dated 12 February 1985: "Le Monde must disappear and for us it already has."
