The director has just invited me to go this afternoon by train to Ribeirao Preto,and how it is for me a great pleasure, I accepted. He will make me do not come back this afternoon to take the train. He invited me to lunch, which I accepted and the ask you please to excuse me for not going to lunch with you.

See you soon"

"Dear Henrique,

How was the trip?
Give me news of your father.
Here is going well, the weather is beautiful,
 I’m already in my new apartment in the Rue Villault 5 "logeune"
(maybe Duchesnois, Valognes) and there
I am living with the son of "Sabreur" (his greyhound racing dog).
The races begin soon, but it only run in May.
Send my regards to Lena and to everybody else.

Paris - April, 4 1930
