Faou,

We received the first envelope containing the correspondence and waited impatiently for the next one. Especially here, we like everything that comes from Paris. The triumph continues and increases. The audience is extraordinary (...).

You worry us enormously due to the major work carried out in the apartment. Above all, do not commit to any expenses in our absence (...).

I count on you for Radio 47 and a film newspaper or two.

Miss EP

Edith Piaf (1915 - 1963) is a monument of French culture, a legendary singer. After the war, she became internationally famous in Europe, South America and the United States.

In 1948, she met the great love of her life, boxer Marcel Cerdan, who became world boxing champion and, shortly afterwards, died in a plane crash. This great love story, which was the target of the media, had great importance in its history.

Among Piaf's biggest hits are "La vie en rose" (1946), "Milord" (1959) or "Non, je ne regrette rien" (1960). She sang "Hymne à l'amour" (1949) and "Mon Dieu" (1960, composed by Charles Dumont) in memory of Marcel.

At the time Edith Piaf wrote this letter, she was touring Scandinavia, where she found great success.

Although this letter was not written by Piaf herself, but dictated and signed by her, the content is very interesting to understand the personality and daily life of the singer at the height of her career. She missed Paris and highlighted how much the northern European audience loved her concerts. She also asked for news from some people in Paris, worried about her apartment, which was under renovation at the time, and requested some film magazines.
