*Georges BERNANOS (1888-1948). L.A.S., Lunéville Thursday [18 June 1926], to Maurice Courtois-Suffit; 4 pages in-12 in
blue ink, envelope.
Following the success of Sous le soleil de Satan, Bernanos is about to leave his job as an inspector at the insurance company La Nationale, and asks for a reprieve for an article: "I must review the accounts of all my agencies. It's a dog's job, and even a learned dog's job - or at least a calculating one. It's a sad necessity for me who, just a few years ago, counted on my fingers, like everyone else!.... So grant me a few weeks' reprieve, if at all possible...".
