Jean Cocteau to Jean Marai

19 place de la Madeleine, 1939

My Jeannot,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for having saved me. I was drowning and you threw yourself into the water without hesitation, without a backward look. What is admirable about it is that all this cost you dear and you wouldn't have done
it if the impulse hadn't been sincere. So you have given me a proof of strength, a proof that all the lessons of our work have borne fruit.

In love you can't run with the hare and hunt with the hounds and there is no such thing as a small love. You tended to believe in André's system: "One collects a face", etc. That's wrong.

Love is Tristan and Isolde. Tristan is unfaithful to Isolde and it kills him. In just one minute you understood that our love couldn't be weighed against a sort of regret, a sort of baseless sorrow. I shall never forget those two days and that terrible
14th of July when I tempted fate and when

I didn't know where to live anymore. We shall find our island of love again and our factory for the production of beautiful works of art. I adore you.
          
Write me two lines. Your short letters are my fetishes.

Jean
