PART III - SEARCHING FOR HELP

" When Budapest is free again," I answered. "I am convinced that a solemn declaration by the cities will prompt the governments into action."
" A nice plan," he answered. "I am glad to meet an unselfish man."
" This is not a matter of unselfishness," I answered. "To live according to one's own code of honor is, in the final analysis, the greatest selfishness. In this interpretation I am selfish. I would be the happiest man in the world, however, if I could help my country to be free again."
He liked my answer and explained that he spoke and wrote English, French, and German. Translation was his hobby. He had no permanent job, for he was a poet. After all, he added, this damn world needs poets more than businessmen with bulging pockets. He would be glad to come with me to The Hague and to do his best.
" And, by the way," he asked, "who supplied the money?" "An American organization," I answered. "And what do they want for it?"

" That's new," he said. "Here in Europe, Americans have a different reputation. They think they can buy everything with money. They brag, they are loud, and they put their feet on the table." .
" I agree with you that that's their reputation," I said. "But I haven't seen any of this."
The next few days were spent in preparation for the trip. Memorandums were written and translated into three languages.
