It is exactly at the time when it connected the
last cable that Hermann heard a kind of deaf noise which came from the interior of the
building. He immediately thought that in spite of the security instructions, The stream
had been put on wire that he was occupied connecting and to avoid any electrocution, he
tried to rise on the roof that was only at a few centimetres of him. It is at the time
when his head exceeded the edge top of the node of the building that he then
"believed" to see a strange flying machine that was coming towards him.

strange thing but he answered me that then there was nothing special to occur. He was
charged to finish connections of the giant screen and inside, all the computers were
ready. The first tests had started and undoubtedly somebody had decided to connect stream

My discussion with Hermann W. does not have to last a very long
time and these are the most useful information that he gave me. And indeed, this simple
testimony indicates immediately where is the Passage place. But the various signs about
which I spoke to you in my previous mail also indicate it. As I supposed it, it is enough
to reason a very little bit and to wonder why these so representative signs are placed at
these places and one discovers the key of the enigma.
It is of course necessary to have a map of the Exposition. I
provided to you a copy with this mail. As you will be able to see it on this card, the
three Obscures signs about which I had spoken to you are all situated close from one to
the other and all of them are in the east part.
