Théodore Strawinsky to Boulanger
Geneva
October 2, 1969
My very dear Nadia,
Thank you, thank you for your note and for your unfailing friendship toward my father and us.
Yes, the problems that are cropping up are so painful, and, as you say, critical in any plans, but
what and how should I feel when all access toward my father has been virtually blocked?! What
a tragedy, foremost for him, but also for us, his children . . . In such a situation we are powerless,
because what can we do that won’t provoke too much of a painful shock for him, even though I
know his deepest thoughts.
I have just received a heartbreaking letter from Milène. The poor girl has front row seats to this
tragedy. They are in New York (I mean my father) and plan to go to Paris around the 15th of this
month. Here is Milène’s address:
Mrs. André Marion
146 South La Peer Drive
Los Angeles Calif. 90048
U.S.A.
I send my heartfelt love, dear Nadia. Perhaps we’ll see each other soon,
Théodore
