TEXTE PROVISOIRE: HELEN ARNOLD
(28 x 2009)


 

David,

I wanted to tell you that since we spoke, and you gave me your version of your negotiations with Stanford and the Castoriadis family, I have come to the realization that when SUP told me they had broken all relations with you and had no intention of signing another contract with you, they had not, as I was led to believe, formally informed you of that situation and of their reasons for doing so (or at least of the legally justifiable reasons). I had no notion, as I now do after working with them, of the extent of their incompetence and disorganization. Had I realized this at the time, I would of course have demanded written proof of formal, legally valid termination before signing any contract with them. I must admit to my negligence on that count.

It is true that had this discussion taken place at the time I would have made that demand immediately, but as I have repeatedly told you, I did not discuss the matter with you at the time because I had the distinct impression that your very complicated relations with the Castoriadis family obviated the possibility of an impartial discussion with either party.
