Francis Poulenc in France - at the end of 1918

from Selected correspondence 1915-1963 / Francis Poulenc, page 28:

Two days ago I received a letter from Edouard Souberbielle who is working at the moment on a piece for piano entitled Jeux d'enfants. Before he left I heard bits of this work. I think it will be an extremely good piece.
