Dear Sir,

End of June 1996, the house and grounds at Louveciennes of the French-born American writer Anais Nin will be sold. The developers intend to divide the property into lots for the construction of residential real estate. Our intervention at the Town Hall of Louveciennes has been unsuccessful. Anais Nin lived in this house at 2 bis, rue Montbuisson in Louveciennes from 1930 to 1936. The years at this address mark the start of the writer's literary career. We consider that the loss of the home is nothing less than the destruction of a national and international heritage. Therefore we ask you to promptly intervene in order to interrupt this sale and classify Anais Nin's house as a National Historic Monument.

I,____________________, the undersigned, endorse the above petition and join as a regular member of the Association for the Preservation of the House of Anais Nin.
