Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh
The Hague, 9 May 1873

The Hague, 9th May 1873

Dear Theo,

Monday morning I leave Helvoirt for Paris, and shall pass Brussels at 2.07 P. M.

I must not forget to tell you that I showed your photograph to Mrs. Tersteeg, and she would like very much to have one. Is there a chance of your having another and sending it to me? If not now, maybe another time.

Theo, you have no idea how kind everybody here is to me, and you can imagine how sorry I am to have to leave so many friends.

Adieu, boy. Compliments to Uncle and Aunt, hope to see you soon.


Inquire if you have to be at the north or the south station.

At this time, Vincent was 20 year old
