    Cher Jean-Paul, cher Piero,


    La Société Jules Verne Nord-Américaine a tenu son Assemblée annuelle la
    semaine dernière à la Bibliothèque du Congrès, à Washington, DC.


    Tous les membres présents ont pris connaissance avec plaisir du programme
    annoncé pour le Mondial Jules Verne 2005, dont la qualité et le nombre des
    manifestations les ont favorablement impressionné.


    Nous nous réjouissons de participer à cette rencontre et nous pouvons déjà
    vous annoncer une participation certaine de quinze personnes, dont
    plusieurs sont déjà prêts à présenter les résultats de leurs recherches et
    découvertes lors du colloque.


    Nous sommes persuadés que les autres sociétés et clubs Jules Verne vont
    aussi faire le maximum pour participer à cette rencontre exceptionnelle.


    Afin de pouvoir planifier cette rencontre exceptionnelle, nous attendons
    avec impatience un formulaire d'inscription avec les prix. Nous vous
    serions très reconnaissants de nous fournir ces informations pour la fin de
    l'été, afin que nous puissions planifier de manière raisonnable aussi bien
    les possibilités de voyage que les implications financières.


    Dans l'attente de pouvoir vous rencontrer en mars 2005, nous vous envoyons,
    cher Jean-Paul, cher Piero, nos cordiaux messages et amicales salutations.


    Le comité de la Société Jules Verne nord-américaine: Jean-Michel Margot,

    Dear Jean-Paul, dear Piero,


    The North American Jules Verne Society had its Annual Meeting last week at
    the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.


    All attending members were pleased to learn about the rich and well-planned
    program of the Jules Verne Mundial 2005. The quality of the events and the
    number of visits scheduled impressed all of us.


    We are really looking forward to this exceptional commemoration and can
    already inform you that at least 15 NAJVS members will be there;
    additionally, several members are ready to present their discoveries and
    research during the workshop.


    We are convinced that the other Jules Verne societies and clubs from around
    the world will do the maximum to share this exceptional meeting with us.


    So that we may plan for this incredible event, we look forward to getting
    the appropriate forms and pricing information as quickly as possible. We'll
    be deeply grateful if you can provide us with specific dates, times, and
    places by the end of the summer. That way, those of us overseas can have
    adequate time to make decent travel and financial arrangements.


    Awaiting the pleasure of meeting you both in March 2005, we send you, dear
    Jean-Paul, dear Piero, our best regards.


    The Board of Trustees of the North American Jules Verne Society:
    Jean-Michel Margot, Rick Walter, Brian Kutzera, Dennis Kytasaari, Andrew
