From: Vincent van Gogh
To: Theo van Gogh
Date: Arles, Friday, 4 January 1889
Amsterdam, Van Gogh Museum, inv. no. b613 V/1962
The letter was written when Van Gogh was allowed to leave the hospital for a few hours and went to the Yellow House (ll. 7-11, 40-42). This was on Friday, 4 January 1889, as evidenced by a letter Joseph Roulin sent on this day to Theo (FR b1068).
Previously the two letters, the one to Theo and the one to Gauguin, were included under one number. Here we have separated them. For the second letter, see 730.
