My friend,
On Wednesday we have the Requiem Canticles here. You can imagine how I felt, hearing at last
this work that has for so long been in my heart and in my thoughts. It seems that it was prepared
with [illegible] attention and love. My fond wishes to Vera and to you, and give my best to Bob.
Yours, always,
Nadia B.

Mon ami,
Mercredi Requiem Canticles ici—vous imaginez mon émotion, entendre enfin l’œuvre
qui est depuis longtemps dans mon cœur et dans mon esprit. Il semble qu’elle soit
préparée avec l’attention et l’amour [illisible]. Je vous embrasse, Véra et vous, et dis bien
des pensées à Bob.
Toujours votre,
Nadia B.
