Dear Corrina,

You might try the archives of Gilles Barbedette (Nabokov's editor for
L'Édition Pléaide), which are housed at L'Institut Mémoires de l'Édition
Contemporaine (IMEC) in Paris, France.

"Alice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said. 'One can't believe
impossible things.'
'I dare say you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. 'When I was
your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've
believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.' "
