Dearest Nadia,
Here we are in Rome, with me in bed with a bad cold.
Would you be an angel and call for a bottle of Balsamorhinol,* which we can't find here?
Thank you for your telegram.
I will be waiting for you on the 2nd.
Love,

Dearest Nadia,
Nous voila à Rome, moi au lit avec un gris rhume (ruhme ?).
Vous serez un ange de m’appeler un flacon de Balsamorhinol * qu’on ne trouve pas ici.
Merci pour votre bon telegramme [sic].
Je vous attend le 2
Love,
