Boulanger to Théodore Strawinsky
February 1, 1971
Dear Théodore,
Your distressing letter affected me so painfully. All that is happening at the moment is
unbearably heartbreaking, and we would like to think it untrue. I am with you with all my heart,
in prayer for him and for those capable of such an act. May God have pity on their misery. We
cannot.
Lovingly yours,
Nadia

Boulanger à Théodore Strawinsky

Cher Théodore,
Votre bouleversante lettre m’atteint bien douloureusement. Tout ce qui se passe en ce
moment est déchirant insupportable et l’on voudrait croire invraisemblable. De quel cœur
je suis avec vous, en prière pour lui et pour ceux capables d’un tel acte. Que Dieu ait pitié
de leur misère nous ne pouvons pas.
Je vous embrasse,
Nadia
