Dear Igor,
Finally—a promise kept—I am sending you your Pater and Credo in the same package! Sorry
about the Sonata, it is not really my fault, but I hope [to send it] next week. Thank you for
Haïeff. Yes, you are a part of the Fund. I asked you when you were still living in Paris, in 1936, I
Give my best to Vera, and know both of you that I am there where you are, with all my heart. My
God, what I would not give to see you again,
Nadia B

Cher Igor,
Enfin—une promesse tenue—par le même courrier je vous envoie le Pater et le Credo ! Pardon
pr. la Sonate—ce n’est vraiment pas de ma faute—mais j’espère, la semaine prochaine. Merci
pour Haïeff, oui, vous faites partie de la fondation. Je vous l’avais demandé quand vous étiez
encore à Paris, en 1936, je crois.
Embrassez Véra—et sachez tous deux que je suis là-bas où vous êtes, de tout cœur—Mon Dieu,
que ne donnerais-je pour vous revoir.
Nadia B
