A Letter from Molly Picon to her Mother from Paris, August 23, Part 3 of 3

A letter from Molly Picon to her mother from Paris, dated August 23.

Part 1 and part 2.
The text of the letter reads as follows:
....in the Sarah Bernhardt Theatre and I'm to dress in Bernhardt's dressing room and we'll either sail or fly home about the 17th of September -

After flying in Poland (about which we'll tell you at home) we feel we can fly even in a -------.

I hope you got my letter about the painting of the apartment and if you can get it done before we get home we'd appreciate it - because we'll have lots to do when we get in - especially the first few weeks.

We're both feeling fine - a little tired physically but very good spiritually after the job we did in Poland we were happy to hear all is well and normal at home. After what we've seen and heard your letters sound as if they come from another world!

That's all for to-day - we're still not quite used to the glamour and light of Paris - so we want to get out and walk in the brightly lit streets and see people smiling again.

Love to all at home - and mama - now you can be proud of your children! We were the first and the only ones that had the courage and the spirit to do what we did in Poland!!

Love and again we'll soon be home - Write to American Express.

Mollie and Yonkel
