      Friends,

      Last month I had the opportunity to give a lecture at the Russian Academy
      of Sciences in Moscow: I was treated with the greatest hospitality by my
      host Valery Petrov, and received many stimulating questions from an
      audience of bright young researchers.

      Since then my Russian friends inform me that a sudden series of reforms
      has been imposed upon the Academy without consultation which, they feel,
      will be disastrous for this august institution which has survived
      Stalinist oppression, only to now have its very existence threatened by
      what appears to be a combination of real-estate speculation and personal
      whims on the part of Putin. I have signed their online petition, and I
      hope as many international colleague as possible will do likewise.

      Please circulate this petition as widely as possible.

      Best, Mike

        Cher Michael,

        félicitations pour cette initiative. J'ai tenté de signer en ligne, mais
        le formulaire n'enregistre pas la signature, il serait important de le
        vérifier.

        Tu auras reçu le message que j'ai fait circuler concernant l'exposition
        consacrée à Raymond Klibansky et le catalogue que j'ai fait paraître. Je
        regrette de ne pouvoir te la faire visiter en personne, elle se termine le
        25 août prochain,

        très cordiales salutations


        GEORGES

          M.C. Merci, Cher Georges. J'ai alerté mes amis russes à ce problème.

          Ca m'a fait très plaisir d'avoir de tes nouvelles. J'espère que tu vas bien.


          J'ai beaucoup apprécié mon séjour à Moscou, invité par l'Académie. Après
          ma conférence j'ai pu jaser un peu avec Viktor Vizgin, un monsieur très
          aimable d'un certain âge qui avait séjourné chez Segonds à Paris. Nous
          avons donc pu, sur les bords du Moskva, lever nos verres à la mémoire
          d'Alain.

          M.C. En effet, j'ai reçu l'annonce de cette expo qui sera sans doute des
          plus intéressantes, je t'en félicite! Malheureusement je n'ai que rarement
          l'occasion de passer par Montréal, autrement je ne l'aurai certainement
          pas raté.

          Bien amicalement à toi,

          Mike
