Vincent and Gauguin to Emile Bernard. Arles, Thursday, 1 or Friday, 2 November 1888.

Gauguin has been in the yellow house for about a week at this point and they have each written to Emile Bernard – they have also purchased some coarse jute canvas together and are both working on that as Gauguin reports to Bernard.
