Francis Poulenc - 1939

from Selected correspondence 1915-1963 / Francis Poulenc, page 121:

I shall often think of those last holidays at Kekker and of our two beautiful musical soirées. That last evening, when I insisted on hearing 'Tu vois le feu du soir', I knew that I would not be hearing it again ... let's say for quite some time. Think of your Poupoule. Love his music. That is all I ask you.
