It is not easy to leave you, dear Igor, darling Vera, and I do not know what to say, because . . . I
do not want to whine.
Once again the page turns. I am reunited with very dear Friends here, their welcome touches me,
but . . . I will not see you again for a long time, and that disappointment occupies all my
thoughts.
Thank you for everything, you do not know the good that your affection does me.
For both of you, very fondly,
Nadia B

Pas facile de vous quitter, Cher Igor, Chère Véra, et je ne sais que vous dire, car…je n’ai envie
que de me lamenter.
Encore une page tournée. Je retrouve ici de bien chers Amis, leur accueil me touche, mais…Je ne
vous verrai plus, pour longtemps, et ce chagrin domine toutes mes pensées.
Merci de tout, vous ne savez pas le bien que me fait votre affection.
A tout, bien tendrement,
Nadia B
