In 1907 Gertrude had tried to get them published through friends in New York.
After several unsuccessful attempts, it was apparent that no commercial publisher
would take them, and she was finally persuaded to pay for their printing herself.
She sent off her manuscripts in large bundles to friends in New York, and
prepared the rue de Fleurus for the war. That first winter of the war was a shock
for most of them. There was a new austerity, a new hunger. There were trucks
and guns ...
Every day they read the news of the war, and worried letters from friends in
America. There was sporadic news, too, from Paris, of recent poetry readings or
piano recitals, and in December 191 5, of the death of Picasso's mistress Eva.
