From: Vincent van Gogh
To: Theo van Gogh
Date: Paris, probably September or October 1875
Amsterdam, Van Gogh Museum, inv. no. b49 b V/1962
This small sheet probably dates from September or October 1875, in a period when the subject of bread came up several times. In letter 52 of 29 September that year, Vincent asks Theo if he has started eating extra bread yet, and he speaks of it again in letters 55 and 56 of October. In De brieven 1990 this note was printed with letter 49 of Friday, 17 September 1875, but we can see no good reason for that.
