3I suddenly felt so near you this evening. I hadn’t been thinking of
4you at all all day because I was so busy writing. It was a kind of
5sudden rush of my heart to you.

7I am going to the Richter concert tomorrow, because my brain needs
8rest. I am very well. You say you don’t like to go to concerts &
9such places with me. I can understand the feeling only I like to go
10with you. We must have one whole day in the country soon.
