Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh
The Hague, 2 May 1882
Relevant paintings:

"Tree roots," Vincent van Gogh

[Postcard, written in English]

Today I sent you by post 1 drawing, “A Root in a dry ground.” Just let me know what you think of it. “The Roots” is very similar to this one, but I cannot send that one, neither “Sorrow” in this manner on a roller, the drawings being mounted on cardboard.

But the paper has been slightly damaged in 2 or 3 places, as I worked through it; please have this seen to at once, else it might get worse. I think it wants a grey mount. Good bye, I hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.


Tuesday evening.

At this time, Vincent was 29 year old
