"_ Yes, sir, do me the pleasure of issuing this determined fellow a brief at once ... considering that the indicated gentleman refuses to publish my newspaper and, by doing so, ruins my business, he will surely be fined in the amount of 6,700 francs for the damages and interest ... -But what does he base his refusal on? -Oh, on foolishness ... a miserly thing ... on that I now have to pay him cash in advance and that I am 21 months late on my payment ... It's a weak pretext, a quarrel with German/ without a sound reason"
