En 1887, à l’occasion de la première Exposition de Hanoï , une réplique de la statue de la Liberté y fut transportée de France. Elle ne mesurait que trois mètres de hauteur. Certes, elle était beaucoup moins imposante par rapport à celle installée à New York , aux Etats-Unis.
La loge “La Fraternité Tonkinoise” a , dit-on , acheté la statue pour l’exposition et puis elle l’a offerte à la ville de Hanoï. La statue de la Liberté éclairant le Monde était située sur la Place Neyret jusqu’au premier août 1945. Ce jour-là , point culminant de la fièvre nationaliste , elle fut démontée suite à l’ordre du premier maire vietnamien de Hanoï , docteur Tran Van Lai. Symboliquement , la liberté du Vietnam a été assassinée depuis.

Je tiens à exprimer ma gratitude envers Serge, qui m'a généreusement offert cette pièce de souvenir.

Dear Mary,
Many thanks for your very nice letter which I received yesterday along with Sibyl's nice card. Please thank her also. It was wonderful hearing from you both! Hope to get a letter off to you today. If I don't get a chance this will at least let you know I'm thinking of you. Am very happy you would like me to send the brass plaques. Will try to get them off today. Airmail may be too expensive. If so will send them by surface so it will be 5-6 wks before you will get them. Love, P

Dear Mary,
I hope later on today I'll be able to write to you in reply to your very nice letter of the 9th. A staff meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m soperhaps I will be able to do it then, otherwise I'll write during the weekend as I have no special plans. I could go to Cap St Jacques this weekend as my friend is still trying to get me to change my mind, but he won't succeed as it just isn't safe or sane to go. Yesterday I received a new muffler the Porsche Car Pacific Inc in San Francisco. It didn't arrive any too soon as I don't have any muffler at all and if I don't keep my new windows open I can be asphyxiated as you know! Love,
P

Dear Mary,
Thank you very much for your nice long newsy letter of the 9th which I was so happy to receive yesterday! Just ten minutes before it was time for me to go to luch the courrier brought it to me. I was delighted ~ especially since I had reconciled myself to the fact that I wouldn't hear from you until Thursday. I hope to get an opportunity to write to you today but if I don't then I will write to you for sure togight. Meanwhile I've enjoyed "chatting" with you for a few minutes. Love to you and Silbyl. P
