My dear Nadia,
Do whatever you can to come to Santa Barbara since for me, unfortunately—there is no chance I
can go to Glenbrook.*
Your note greatly touched and encouraged me in the hopes of seeing you again soon. I am sure
that if you are going “to try to spend a couple of days in Santa Barbara” you will come here and
we will see you.
Hoping to see you soon.
With great affection,
I Str.
*I must stay here to make some important decisions.
