Thank you—the things to say about these pages! Dear Igor—
But we will be together soon. Have received [word] from Haïeff, everything is his fault, and not
his fault. (Winter’s fault, primarily). He has been sick, at the mercy of terrible difficulties. I will
bring you his letter. Forgive him. He needs it.
With all my heart,
Nadia B.

Merci—que de choses à dire à propos de cette feuille ! Cher Igor—
Mais nous nous verrons bientôt. Ai reçu de Haïeff—tout est de sa faute—et pas de sa faute. (De
la faute de Winter d’abord). Il a été malade, en proie à de lourdes difficultés. Vous apporterez sa
lettre, Pardonnez-lui—il le faut.
Vous embrasse tous deux, de tout cœur.
Nadia B.
