I Have shipped you a film on the Semiramis Hotel assault, 80 ft, on 27/9, at 0700 to Rome then London via first place, on PA 111 E/L 070-0131 8936.
I was not able to telex because the press was not allowed to use same. I beg you to correspond with me c/o Telex, since the cables are taking too much time to reach here. . I apologise for the three films and I do not really know why they were so. For this reason, I used to today's subject-matter KODAK in lieu of FUJI.
I have received a cheque on 26/7 and another on 24/8. I am now in need of money.
