Reverend van Gogh to Theo
14 February 1881
It is very kind of you that you are
willing to assist us a little in those expenses for Vincent. I
can assure you that it will not be a negligible relief to us,
for the months fly by and every time the necessary sum has to
be available. I sent him forty guilders in the beginning of
January, twenty guilders on 22 January, thirty-five guilders on
7 February. Yet, it should not get you into any troubles
yourself. For the moment he is cared for, but in the beginning
of March he will need something again. Does it suit you to take
care of it already then, or shall I do it; tell me frankly.
At this time, Vincent was 27 year old
