It would be most useful to us who are interested in this archive
of documents to know exactly what kind of documents are included in it.
If you have a complete list of the documents included, please send it
to us.

I have assorted documents pertaining to my family, copies of which I
would gladly give to the museum. I do not know whether my documents are
more or less numerous or more or less interesting.
By May 10th at the latest, I shall be able to send you a list of documents.

Best regards,
