From: Vincent van Gogh
To: Theo van Gogh
Date: Arles, Sunday, 27 May 1888
Amsterdam, Van Gogh Museum, inv. no. b531 V/1962
The letter was written on a Sunday (ll. 28-29). It must follow letter 613 of Saturday, 26 May with the paint order that Van Gogh refers to here (ll. 3-4). In letter 613 he says he only has enough money left for tomorrow, Sunday; in the present letter the money has all gone. Since he comments on the sunny weather (ll. 30-31) and the weather reports record sunshine on Sunday, 27 May 1888, we have dated the letter that day (Météo-France).
