Dear Velikovsky,

for the final time I am now correcting the proofs of Die Seevölker. It was not an easy job: the first translator, Dr. Rehork, was so much involved with established views that we couldn’t continue; and with Dr. Wagmuth, the second translator, I found it necessary to very carefully check and re-check the text in MS and proof. Then much persuasion was called for to have the typesetting conform to your directions: footnotes are now on the page, paragraphs are with indentations, and the whole book will look very much like the original. However: because in the introduction you are referring to “The Pitfalls of Radiocarbon Dating”, I decided to include this treatise as supplement No. 2, “Die Klippen der Cl4-Datierung”. We cannot very well ask the German readers to look up Pensée, and experience has now taught me, that reviewers are sadly lacking background material.

I always trust you will let me know once you wish to receive fuller reports. Meanwhile, here’s a mistake that should be corrected in Peoples: p. 130, line 5 from bottom, must read “nineteen” instead of twenty-nine days.

And, of course, it would be fine to hear that you are well and active. With best wishes and friendly regards, yours
