In 1931, just in case we missed it the first time round - a Brochure-format of Elie Tisseyre’s 1906 article entitled ‘Excursion on 25 June 1905 to Rennes-le-Château’ was deposited in the Bibliothèque Municipale of Carcassonne by someone called “Marty”. Apart from the strangeness of a singular article being deposited a second time into a library [Who was 'Marty' hoping would see it again and why not publish the whole issue that the single article once appeared in?] 25 years after it originally appeared - who in fact was Marty? Was he somehow privy to certain information? Or did he want to divulge more information in relation to the important Marie de Negre tombstone? It is a strange enigma.
Interesting then that Cherisey has this to say in the 1970's ....
"7 AUGUST 1977
Received a letter from a correspondent, Monsieur MARTY of Carcassonne, the owner since 1956 of the tombstone said to be that of the Marquise de BLANCHEFORT of Rennes. Monsieur MARTY, who has also received a copy of ‘CERCLE D’ULYSSE’, has certain questions to ask. This gentleman asks me on what JEAN DELAUDE bases his statements about certain published ‘parchments’.
"14 AUGUST 1977
Another letter from this same dear Monsieur MARTY, asking:
‘What do you think of FRANCIS BLANCHE?’
Quite a lot, indeed. I met him for the first time in a nightclub near the Place Saint Georges in Paris. He tried to frighten me and he certainly succeeded".
