"I would like to tell you every thing that happened to me since the last time we saw each other." You see, this is how life was before social media where we can tell each other every little detail immediately. Letter writing and personal meetings were, I think, richer back then

I found this an interesting question re authenticity of the letter so looked it up. She was given the name Frieda when she was born, and later changed it to Frida. She also changed her year of birth to 1910 so it would match the year of the beginning of the Mexican revolution.

Kahlo was given her two names so that she could be baptized according to Catholic traditions, but was always called Frida. She preferred to spell her name Frieda until the late 1930s, when she dropped the 'e' as she did not wish to be associated with Germany duringย Hitler's rule.

I did not know these two women knew of each other, and even wrote each other. That thought just made me strangely happy๐Ÿ”น

There is something evasive about publishing peopleโ€™s private correspondance. I know itโ€™s done all the time, but it doesnโ€™t feel right to me.

This is still the case, from experience. Especially because the bad things rarely get posted.
