Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh
The Hague, 13 December 1872

Dear Theo,

I am so glad that both of us are now to be in the same profession and in the same firm. We must be sure to write to each other regularly.

I hope that I'll see you before you leave, we still have a lot to talk about. I believe that Brussels is a very pleasant city, but it's bound to feel strange for you in the beginning. Write to me soon in any case. Well, goodbye for now, this is just a brief note dashed off in haste, but I had to tell you how delighted I am at the news. Best wishes, and believe me, always,

Your loving brother,

Vincent

I don't envy you having to walk to Oisterwijk every day in this awful weather. Regards from the Roos family.


At this time, Vincent was 19 year old
