Monday 6:30 PM
I just called the house and they told me you were on your way to the airport. Quel choque! I had no idea you were off so soon - the 3 weeks went by like a flash.
I hope you received the message at the Latin-American concert from the Ginasteras. (I missed you Sat. morning again, when I called at 10:30). I caught a most idiotic cold in Washington, and by Friday I was 'fini.' So very sorry it spoiled what could have been an amusing (?) day. Did you ever get tot he Tanglewood concert?
Well, all that is 'water over the dam', like they say.
It was, as always, great fun to have you chez nous. There is something about your lively spirit that makes one feel all is right with the world - even when one knows it isn't so.
Please make this trip an annual affair. And bring us your latest piece.
Your old friend
