Dear Igor,
Many thoughts sent your way for March 2—so many thoughts for your work. We’ve just worked
on Threni, this marvel in which every note has been chosen and found.
I don’t want to bother you after you’ve started Noah [sic]. You are a world of energy, of
invention, and of courage—always taking up the struggle again.
I’m sad to have no news of you, but I understand.
I am fondly your,
Nadia B
[P.S.] For March 2, 1961

Cher Igor,
Tant de pensées vont vers vous pour le 2 mars—tant de pensées vers votre travail.
Venons de travailler Threni, la meveille[sic] de ce tout où chaque note est coisie[sic],
Ne veux pas vous importuner après qu’avez commencé Noah[sic]. Vous êtes un monde
d’énérgie[sic], d’invention, et de courage. Toujours recommencer la lutte.
Suis triste de ne rien savoir de vous, mais comprends.
Je vous embrasse, suis votre,
Nadia B
[P.-S.] Pour le 2 mars 1961
