Bernoud tells Kanné that Dr. Becker has written to him complaining that he has not yet sent the photographs which Kanné asked him to take in Naples the previous winter. But neither Monsieur Melga, whom Kanné instructed to obtain permission through the British Consul for the photography, nor Bernoud himself, has been able to persuade the Consul to seek the necessary permission without express orders from the Foreign Office, so Bernoud has written to Becker (see VIC/ADDA10/85/270) asking him to see to this, and he asks the same of Kanné.

VIC/ADDA10/85/271a is a note from Kanné on the letter, forwarding it to Becker with an ironic comment about how difficult it is to get anything done in Italy unless one is there oneself.
