Milène Marion [née Stravinsky] to Boulanger
October 27, 1969
Dear Mademoiselle Boulanger,
Your letter touched me deeply. The feelings of kindness and understanding that it expressed are a
great comfort for us in the very difficult and troubling situation we find ourselves, which is even
more difficult as my brothers and I are totally powerless to set it right.
Thank you for your loyal friendship and be sure of my deep and sincere respect for you,

Milène Marion [née Stravinsky] à Boulanger
27 octobre 1969
Chère Mademoiselle Boulanger,
Votre lettre m’a profondément touchée. Les sentiments de sympathie et de
compréhension qu’elle exprime nous sont d’un grand réconfort dans la situation très
difficile et pénible que nous trouverons [sic], d’autant plus pénible que nous sommes
totalement impuissants, mes frères et moi, à y remédier.
Merci de votre fidèle amitié et croyez à mes sentiments très sincères de respectueuse
