To Ruben Drampian, January 24, 1927, Paris

I got your very detailed letter and I am very grateful to you for that. It is so interesting and full of so many pleasant news that in a way its style is reminiscent of newspaper article and if only with your permission some parts of it could be published fully in the Parisian armenian newspaper "Erevan".
...Very glad that Erivan is under construction and turns into a capital. I too dream of building a house with a studio and even a separate gallery for my works. But long ago a poet said: "Dreams, oh dreams, where are your sweetness". So probably, with the dreams I'll have to croak.
