This was the former poincaré raymond president who saw his state of health deteriorate at the beginning of the month after it appeared to be "a very great fatigue" (the charente, December 18, 1930). First of all, thank you for your letter. In the last few days, your thoughts have come back to me often. The agony of our great marshal must be you, especially, very painful.
How noble & simple & serene, this long agony! What a beautiful ray, finally, on the name of joffre! For our friend Raymond, I've only been pretty reassured since yesterday.
As far as I was able to find out, the initial accident was "a slow and diffuse hemorrhage in a mute region of the brain." The bleeding stopped quite quickly; but there seems to have been a brief recovery.
Today, improvement is evident; if it persists for four or five more days, it will be decisive. It is therefore our hope that after a very long and very severe recovery, our illustrious friend will be able to resume a normal life. I say "normal" because it will now have to ban itself from the superhuman work it once imposed.However, I believe that, in the most favourable case, he will still be able to play a magisterial role as adviser, moderator, referee, brake. I certainly do not forget, dear friend, the kind invitation of Madame Hanotaux & I have the firm hope of going to visit you at the end of February: I promise myself a great pleasure. In the meantime, find here, dear friend, & please share with Madame Hanotaux, my most affectionate wishes.
