Here we are, in view of Boston, and the train is bouncing along enthusiastically. That does not
mean all that much to you. But I know how these coming days will be, and I must, my dear Igor
and Vera, tell you what the visit to your place this Thursday meant. It was so nice for me, did me
much good, and I thank you with all my heart. [This note is] not very interesting, but I would not
have peace of mind without telling you. You are so good and I love you dearly.

Nous voici en vue de Boston—que le train sautille avec ardeur—cela ne se voit que trop. Mais je
sais ce que seront ces journées qui viennen [sic], et il me faut, mes chers Igor et Vera, vous dire
ce qu’a été ce jeudi chez vous. Il m’a été si doux, m’a fait tant de bien, et je vous en remercie de
tout mon cœur. Pas bien intéressant, mais je n’aurais pas été tranquille sans vous l’avoir dit.
Vous êtes si bons et je vous aime tant.
