Yesterday I wrote to Rolf Grossmann, Helmut Schanze's assistant in the
operations of the conference. The following is his reply to me, with
some editing to remove a few private remarks.

Concerning the other problem, the confirmations of Congress Partner,
there are two points to consider: During this weeks several strikes of
the Deutsche Bundespost employees are carried out and there can be
delays on this cause. The other point is, that only if the conditions
of Congress Partner are fulfilled the travel documents will be sent out.
These conditions are especially: Only Credit cards of Eurocard,
Mastercard, Access, American Express or Eurocheque will be accepted n o
t Visa or others. If someone try to pay with cheques the second cheque
has to show the following sum: First night deposit + DM 35.- handling
fee + additional services (ie. Farewell dinner). I have spoke with
Congress Partner today and they assured me that oversea participants
will get there documents as soon as possible. It would be fine if you
could give these information on HUMANIST.

Kind regards
Rolf Grossmann

ALLC/ICCH International Siegen Conference
Federal Republic of Germany
June 4-9, 1990

Further information re.: Malcolm Brown's 'Siegen arrangements' of
8th May <mbb@jessica.stanford.edu>

The information that I have been given for travel to the conference via
Frankfurt Airport is as follows:

Frequent trains run from the airport to Frankfurt Main (which is a
journey of about 10 minutes).

Trains run from the main station direct to Siegen or via a change at
Giessen. For example the Hagen train stops at Siegen and the train to
Kassel can be taken to Giessen where a local train runs to Siegen.

The cost of a first class ticket from the airport to Siegen is around
15 UK pounds or second class a little over #9.

I have received a letter (but not confirmation of registration) from
Cornelia Thiede an official of the company that Susan Hockey mentioned
in her 4th May 'Siegen reminder' which is:
