George Sand to Ferdynand François
November 12 or 13, 1834. George Sand to Ferdynand François from "Revue Indépendante": "I will ask Chopin to convince you to visit me in matters concerning »Revue« [...] There is no lie in it. I give my conscience for it. […] At the age of 40 I agree to be ridiculed for having an envious lover at my side. I agree to his capricious nature and I act in secret even when I do something good and I practise my religion." 

Poor Op. 57 and 58
Nohant. George Sand to Eugène Delacroix: "Chopin is preparing a load of new compositions, stating, as he used to, that he can do only things poor and worth contempt. The funniest thing is that he says so with the strongest conviction." 
That year in Nohant Chopin was writing the Berceuse Op. 57 and Sonata in B minor Op. 58. More information:
