Dear Igor,
Thank you for your telegram. I cannot respond with precise details, the Committee President is
absent. But I believe the amount would be $10,000, and perhaps the date changed, but I believe it
will [still] be in 1965.
You can imagine how much I hope this project becomes a reality. I am very sad, Pierre of
Monaco died Tuesday. I still can’t believe everything is finished. But what can I say, I will
always feel his presence.
The heart is tired, yet God’s will be done.
My fondest wishes.
I love you so, Dear Igor,
[P.S.] Tell me as soon as you can what you think of this offer.
[P.P.S.] I leave for Monaco but will be here on the 18th. Will telegram as soon as I’ve been able
to contact Mr. Heim.

Cher Igor,
Merci de votre cable [sic]. Ne puis vous répondre d’une manière precise [sic], le
Président du Comité est absent. Mais je crois que la somme pourrait être $10 000, et peut-
être la date changée, mais en 1965, je crois.
Vous imaginez combien je souhaite que ce projet devienne une réalité. Je suis très triste,
Pierre de Monaco est mort mardi. Ne puis encore croire que tout est fini. Mais que dis-je,
je le sentirai toujours present [sic].
Le cœur est fatiguée[sic] pourtant
La Volonté de Dieu soit faite.
Je vous embrasse très fort.
Je vous aime tant, Cher Igor.
[P.-S.] Dites-moi de suite ce que vous pensez de l’offre.
[P.P.-S.] Pars pour Monaco mais serai ici le 18. Cablerai dès qu’aurai pu atteindre M.
