B – Not even enough that…!
O – Next, there is nothing left for us.
O – We have no other pleasure left.
B – How about Monte Cristo?.
O – What do we have some accounts to wash us.
B – I hear him, I did not say in vain, like Conte Monte Cristo, that he, when he thought like you, was 20 years old, and washed them when he was 50 years old, do you intend to live 100 years old ?!
O – No.
B – Why not?! As a race we have to live 120 more.
O – Yes. He said in the letter that indirectly, within 10 years we will meet, but I did not like it much (laughs). Within this ten year old.
B – Who is Xhemali?
O – In the last letter, after he came from America, he wrote me a short letter linking it with other conversations and telling me; within this ten year old we will meet.
B – Yes. In a positive or negative sense?
O – Positive.
B – To whom do you say positive sense?
O – Certainly not…!

B – 1927, not too old!
O – No, he is not old, and I am from ’33, we do not have any big difference with Xhemali.
B – 53 years old more?
O – That’s it, he retired prematurely.
B – Well, you did not understand this treatment, to retire early, at the same time they will offer him a diplomatic post, or does friendship play… ?!
O – No, it is not a matter of friendship, it plays and the issue of nationality, it is Albanian.
B – Even…?
O – Counterweight Serbs.

B – Do not forget!
O – For honor I do not remember.
B – Well, did you not have that ‘Old Testament’, I told him; I got the copy of Monte Cristo.
O – Now I remember, I forgot it at all, it does not matter.
B – It does not matter, because you surprised me.
O – Do you know what it is, some things are fixed on me, I never forget them, even a conversation, it seems to me I consider it a lot, it can be fixed in my head, but it does not matter, you bought books, you received books.
B – How many books?
O – That they received two other books from Idrizi.
B – You took them?
O I know of what they can do.

B – But why, attribute it to Carter and not Nixon?!
O – Carter with his seemingly peace-loving policy, that’s his strategy, withdrew his armies himself, let Vietnam unite as we care, we have China, let these, the little ones, unite and join sure, even those of Korea. He has Japan, he has it there.
B – Well, Russia, how will it view this conversation?
O – Behold, these are the struggles, why is not this struggle of Afghanistan, he was terrified, but he was discredited, he just looks everywhere, do not say why, I do not shake my head, I shake my head what you have with it.
