Dear P. B.,
A short P.S. to yesterday’s letter, so as not to make you answer questions which have turned out to be erledigt.
We have just received the Parisians’ letters, and at once understood what I wrote to you yesterday that I had not quite understood : namely, your warning to be “wise as serpents” (easier said than done!) and to keep away from the “émigrés”. The tone of the letters is such that it serves as an excellent commentary on your remark, which is now quite clear to me.
