Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh
The Hague, 14 August 1883


Dear Theo,

I just received a letter from home (thank Father for it, please - I hadn't received the letter when I wrote,) and I see you intend to leave Breda 2:15 Friday. Please let me know if you change your plans, for I want to come and meet you at the station. If you are in no hurry, we must make the most of the time we can be together. I am working on a painted study for the potato diggers. I hope it will turn out well [F 009, JH 385].

I along very much for your coming; have a good time. A handshake,

Yours, Vincent

Do look at what's going on in the fields in Brabant, and try to get a glimpse of a weaver's interior in the village - they are so picturesque.

At this time, Vincent was 30 year old
