Date based on postmark. Kahlo writes that she has received the money Muray loaned her; that she had an infection in her hand and couldn't work; that she needs to finish a painting to be included in a show of surrealist art; and complains that Muray treats her "only as a friend." She also mentions that "that awful wench" Ione Robinson has come to Mexico and expresses her frustration with Diego [Rivera].
