My dear Theo,
At last I have heard news of my furniture, the man with whom
it is has been ill all the time, having been gored by a bull
when he was helping to unload them. So his wife wrote me that
this was the reason why they put it off from one day to
another, but that on Saturday, that is today, they will send
it. They have had no luck, the wife has been ill too and is not
yet completely recovered, but there wasn't a word of reproach
in the letter, except that it had pained them that I did not
come to see them before leaving; that pained me too.
. I have
another study in the style of the “Harvest,” which is in your
room where the piano is. Some fields seen from a height, with a road
and a little carriage on it; now I am working on a field of poppies in
I have a vineyard study, which M. Gachet liked very much the
last time he came to see me.
For the moment I have nothing else to tell you; a letter
came from Mother, she had been at Nuenen and was longing for
your arrival and to see the little one. A good handshake for
Ever yours, Vincent
