NotesThe original letter is GEO/ADD/28/100. The French transcription and English translation are on two halves of GEO/ADD/28/048. Both documents bear the circled number '29', which shows the order in which the original letter was bound.
The proposed date presumably relates to the implied subject matter of the letter.
The transcript is worded slightly differently from the original.
