The Letters of Vincent van Gogh

To Theo van Gogh. The Hague, 13 December 1872.
My dear Theo,
That was good news that I just read in Pa’s letter. My hearty congratulations. I don’t doubt that it will give you pleasure, it’s such a fine firm. It will be a big change for you. I’m so glad that both of us are now in the same line of business, and in the same firm; we must correspond often.
I hope so much to see you before you leave, we’ll have a lot to talk about. I believe that Brussels is a very pleasant city, though it will seem strange at first. At all events, write to me soon. And now adieu, these are only a few words written in haste, but I just had to tell you how very glad I was. I wish you well, and believe me ever,
Your loving brother
I pity your having to go to Oisterwijk every day in this beastly weather. Regards from the Rooses.
