L.A.S. "Igor Strawinsky", Clarens-Montreux [5 November 1912], to Maurice RAVEL, Paris; text and address on the back of an illustrated postcard from the Hôtel-Pension du Châtelard in Clarens.
"Dear old man! Where is Delage? - I telegraphed him and asked him to press Ballot with the rest of my money collected for Petrousha. No answer! - Although it was sent with the P.R. I also wrote to Ballot two weeks ago - no reply! That's really a bit too much! [...] It is essential for me to receive this money incessantly in order to pursue Miquel's case. I don't have the money". [Strawinsky had lent money to the pianist Miquel ALZIEU for a concert tour.]
