Boulanger to Théodore Strawinsky
December 18, 1956
Dear Théodore,
Thank you for your letter—I think so much about you. I am slowly getting over this absurd
adventure—but everything is returning to order.
I wasn’t able to see your Father, but Mrs. Sachs, who was quite beside herself, was truly happy
to find him back to his old self.
I understand your sorrow.
Know that I think of you both and please accept my wishes and deepest affection.

Boulanger à Théodore Strawinsky
18 décembre 1956
Cher Théodore,
Merci de votre lettre—je pense tant à vous. Me remets lentement de cette absurde
aventure—mais tout rendre dans l’ordre.
N’ai pu voir votre Père mais Madame Sachs qui se tourmentait beaucoup a été vraiment
heureuse de le retrouver lui-même.
Je comprends votre chagrin.
Sachez tous deux toutes mes pensées et recevez mes vœux et ma profonde affection.
