Fraternal greetings!

Dear Sir,

For the closing of the Congress of our Association nothing can be more appropriate than for all members of our Association to visit together the grave of our friend and brother, the great citizen and man of the people, Barbes, who lies buried in The Hague in the Eik en Duin cemetery.

With ardent greetings,

Henri Timmer,
member of the Central Council of Holland
Happiness and fraternal greetings.
