7 L.A.S. "Marie Laurencin" or "Marie", 1952-1955, to Roger NIMIER; 19 pages in-12, envelopes.
Monday morning [July 7, 1952]. "So Me Maurice Garçon's plea for the apartment. The opposing party found that it was out of malice that I wanted to go home and even more absurd - that I was not French!" . She sent him a photo "Three great French women" (her, Colette and A. de Noailles). "Work. It was a pleasure to see you the other day. I say this because you are young.

"I read and reread the short story and felt more and more incapable of illustrating it. Too much movement. I am tired - and why don't you use the drawings I gave you.
