My very dear Friend,
“We leave the 27th”—May or June 27th? And I wonder where my wishes are going to find you.
You are unbelievably lucky: I can’t write—and besides, what letter [could I write] after meeting,
after getting to know the Canticum!!
But, modestly, wisely, I send you my love, I thank you, and I profess myself yours,
[P.S.] I’ll be in Venice at the Bauer from September 11 until . . . ! Everything depends on you.
[P.P.S.] All tenderness to Vera and kind regards to Bob.

Très cher Ami,
« Le 27 nous nous embarquons » 27 mai, Juin ? Et je me demande où mes vœux vont vous
rejoindre. Vous avez une chance folle : je ne sais pas écrire—sans cela quelle lettre après la
rencontre, la connaissance de Canticum !!
Mais modestement, sagement, je vous embrasse—vous remercie—et me dis votre
[P.-S.] Serai à Venise, au Bauer, le 11 septembre jusqu’au… ! Tout dépend de vous.
[P.P.-S.] Mille tendresses à Vera et, amitiés à Bob
