Content and physical description
ContentBohuslav Martinů is still in bed, [Miloslav] Bureš was here. He asks Vladimír Vaněk to ask Ricordi to send him their catalogue of piano reductions and opera scores. Also he would like VV to send him a pocket score of [Edgard] Varèse’s piece [Déserts]. Charlotte Martinů writes: BM has been home for 2 weeks and is happy, but eats almost nothing, so his weight is decreasing. We had visits from Prague, MB and another doctor from an edition [Vojtěch Strnad from Dilia]. [Josef] Páleníček was there too and was so happy to see BM, they are all so nice.
Transcription of the letter

Milý Vládi: jsem na tom pořád stejně, v posteli. Byl zde Bureš. Prosím tě, můžeš požádat Ricordi aby mi poslali Katalogue co vydali za klavírní výtahy a operní partitury, a kdybys mi mohl poslati malou partiturku Vares, mají ji, vyrovnám výdaje příležitostně. Přeji pěkné prázdniny tvůj Bohuš

Chers Amis. Bohus est a la maison depuis 2 semaines il eu est heureux. il mange presque plus rien aussi son foids diminue. Nous avons eu des visites de Prague, Bureš, et un autre Doctore d’une édition. Páleníček était la aussi il était tellement einu de voir Bohus ils sont tous si gentils.

J’espére, qu’il va continuer tout doucement, il est toujours avec tout de projets.

Je pense que vous devez avoir pas mal de chaleur a Rome retournez vite a la mer. ici il fait pas mal chaud aussi.

Toutes nos pensées amicales.
