"Dear Miguel Angel,

...I want to tell you my affection and to express my support.
No battle is ever lost. Sometimes one wins not exactly that we fight for, but is the cause is fair, like it is in your case, one always win.

One wins from the very beginning because it is a triumph over hypocrisy, and, that for each of us in our marginal lives of everyday, in our everyday freedom, in our wonderfully alone life.

Thus we are all with you, at your side, walking with you, only that we do not have your courage, we do not dare to speak out, as you bravely do, we do not want to be noticed, yet we may not be right.

...With my very friendly thoughts and deep sympathy, thanks for giving me this courage.

I send you a kiss.

signed Silvia Baron Supervielle,
in Paris, 11 June 1990."
