Dear Roselle,

We're rushing - so no time for amenities. Thought I should let you know that I don't need to count on an art materials order. (Will work on paper - acrylic and watercolor, which I'll bring). I'll count, however, on a lumber supply source (there must be one) where I can pick up 3 or 4 plywood (3/8" thickness - roughly 36 x 26') boards, and expandable yard (or meter) stick (cheap), and a water jar. Simple needs! I'll even pack my paint tubes in paint rags.

Look forward. Hello to Bill.

Love,

Dick

P.S. Our reservation lands us in Nice 9:40 AM on the 10th. We've rented a car and with luck we should arrive St.- M mid afternoon. This is the earliest we can do because of Biennale meetings in N.Y.C. on the 7th + 8th.

Phyllis wants to take concentrated French lessons while there. Is there anyone you recommend? L - D.
