Letter from Bérenger Saunière to the Saglio Commission
+ Rennes-le-Château 14 July 1911
Anxious to reply as precisely as possible to the various questions that you have put to me, I have devoted several days to the task of furnishing myself with a record of the amounts devoted to the different works that I have carried out.
TOTAL 193,050 francs
I hope that these various pieces of information will allow the matter to be concluded which has caused me so much anxiety, and which has affected me deeply over the past few months, In having confidence that this will be the case, I remain, Sir,
Yours most respectfully,
Abbé Bérenger Saunière
