A long letter to his third wife, Natalja 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 have ordered a box, for example, to put some paintings in, and thoroughly took the wrong measures; afterwards I've ordered a second one, and was also completely mistaken. Finally, I managed it with pain and misery, wrapped in the paintings and will ship it to the censorship office for Friday, and if I manage to do so I will buy a ticket, which costs 35 rubels to the border and another 35 rubels from there to Warsaw [...] My golden one, my beloved one, you're sleeping and can't hear the tender words I'm whispering to you, but I repeat them every single night when I go to bed [...] I have to hurry to the film studios.
