Paris
[December 7, 1937]
The concert has just concluded—I do not know what to tell you, dear, special friend—but you
know, don’t you? Your genius has changed our path, our thought, our awareness, and never will
we be able to thank you enough! But you know what awkwardness keeps me from saying!
Fondly, and with very great affection, I am
Your
Nadia
Boulanger à Stravinsky

Paris
[7 décembre 1937]
Le concert finit à l’instant—je ne sais rien vous dire, Cher unique ami—mais vous savez, n’est-
ce-pas ? Votre génie a changé notre route, notre pensée, notre conscience, et jamais nous ne
pourrons vous remercier ! Vous sentez pourtant tout ce que la maladresse m’empêche de vous
dire !
Je vous embrasse, et suis, en si grande affection,
Votre
Nadia
