In Russian: a long letter to his third wife, Natalya Andreevna (née Manchenka, 1902-90), mentioning the making of a suprematistic movie, organising a shipment of his paintings and his trip to Poland: "[...] I'm totally upset now, more nervous than ever before, you realize that in everything I do. I ordered a box, for example, to put some paintings in, and it was quite useless; afterwards I ordered another, and again got the measurements all wrong. Finally, I managed, though just barely, wrapped the paintings and will ship them to the censorship office on Friday, and if I manage to do so I will buy a ticket, which costs 35 rubles to the border and another 35 rubles from there to Warsaw [...] My golden one, my beloved one, you're asleep and can't hear the tender words I whisper to you, but I repeat them every single night when I go to bed [...] I have to hurry to the studios.
