Dear Igor,
Forgive me for writing again!
1) I’ve received the score from Milan, Thank you with all my heart
2) Would you please tell me your exact flight (number, time, day) because I’d like to meet you at
Orly. I cannot enter without this information.
3) I’d like you to agree to see some young musicians, then I’ll organize a small reception at the
end of Oedipus or of the concert on the 22nd.
I am very conceited!! Because I will bring a crowd to your three concerts.
Not a word more, I take pity on you. I send you both my fond wishes and deepest affection.
Nadia B.

Cher Igor,
Pardon écrire encore !
1) Reçu partition Milan—merci tout cœur
2) Veuillez me faire dire exactement sur quel avion (no., heure, jour) car veux vous embrasser à
Orly—ne peux entrer sans ce renseignement.
3) Voudrais que vous acceptiez voir quelques jeunes musiciens, puis, je organiser [sic] petite
réception à l’issue d’Oedipus ou du concert du 22
Je suis très conceited !! Car j’amène une foule à vos trois concerts.
Pas un mot de plus—j’ai pitié de vous. Vous embrasse tous deux avec la plus profonde affection.
Nadia B.
