March 23, 1954
My dear Nadia,
Your words, your thoughts have touched me infinitely. I would like to tell you that we were also
very close to you, we are always, but most especially this month. And soon [we will have] the
joy of seeing you. But will you be in Paris at the end of June? I hope this with all my heart. We
arrive in Paris on June 12 and will stay there until the end of the month. Then we’re going to
spend two months in southern France and will leave again around September 1.
May this letter find you in good health. Wholehearted and fond wishes,
Soulima Stravinsky à Boulanger

Chère Nadia,
Vos lignes, vos pensées m’ont infiniment touché. Je voudrais vous dire que nous étions aussi très
près de vous, nous le sommes toujours, mais plus particulièrement ce mois-ci. Et bientôt la joie
de vous voir. Mais serez-vous à Paris fin juin ? Je l’espère de tout mon cœur. Nous arriverons le
12 juin à Paris et y resterons jusqu’à la fin du mois. Puis nous irons passer deux mois dans le
Midi et repartons autour du 1er septembre.
Que ces lignes vous trouvent en bonne santé. Je vous embrasse de tout cœur.
