Manuscript by Georges Hugnet, André Breton, Marcelle Ferry (Lila), and Alberto Giacometti dated 26 February 1934, at 10.20 in the evening.
Hugnet, Marcelle Ferry (Lila), and Alberto Giacometti (to whom we can no doubt attribute the little drawing of a grimacing mask that is in the style of his work of the 1930s) are present at this session of February 1934, which is evidence for the almost daily pattern of the games of questions and answers, and the practically exclusive craze prompted by this game during this period.
