The script for MEDEA will be finished in a fortnight, but a producer has not yet been found, and before this problem has been solved, I cannot promise anything in order not to bind the unknown producer of the film. But I shall at the right time and in the right place mention your request. I owe you a debt of gratitude and I shall personally be happy to repay you. With my luck and best wishes, Sincerely, Carl Th. Dreyer.” With the postmarked envelope with Danish stamps addressed to Mr. Stein in Paris. The letter has 2 minor creases from folding, else fine and the envelope is neatly opened.
