"I also communicate to you a letter, which has followed me here, from a lawyer who acts in concert with Kiejman. What is this obscenity? From where comes this person, whose language I do not u.nderstand and what does he mean by 'my society'? Is it a question here of the society of the spectacle? He also precipitously reiterates his demands in a letter dated 23 February, asking me again about 'birth and death records' that Kiejman evidently possesses. Tell me, I ask you, if you know this lawyer and the opportunity for his intervention in our affairs."
"To conclude, they [the police] had the impudence to ask me what I thought of the nature of your relationship with Gerard. I responded: 'Excellent and admirable. Founded on a mutual, complete and perfect trust, which all of your [Floriana's] behavior had moreover confirmed since the assassination.' Without making this scholarly historical reference, I admit to you that, at that moment, I thought of Clausewitz and Marie de Bruehl, because I recalled the tender admiration that Gerard manifested when speaking of this couple and it appeared obvious to me that he recognized himself in it. Seeing the contrast with my customary coldness, I believe that on this point they did not doubt my sincerity nor my conviction. They made no commentary and we left it at that."
