It is very good news about the plaque.

I am however saddened that there will be no Romanian inscription. I cannot
help thinking that the lack of wording in Romanian demeans the plaque, and
in fact demeans the city. You said that "most members of this list
acquiesce" (though I don't remember contributing to this view?). I suppose
that I do acquiesce, but I just wanted to put on record that I think it is a
great pity.

Re the design of the plaque I have no strong feelings, provided that it
looks distinguished.

Best regards,
