Pablo Picasso to Gertrude Stein, 1919.

my translation of the correspondence:

but no Gertrude there are no flies and I’ve only seen one mosquito which I killed by the way Write me if your heart’s in it (tells you to). Wishing many (a thousand) good things (his first instinct of “bonnes” was correct as “chose” is feminine but he crossed it out) to Miss Toklas from both of us and to you. Yours Picasso”
