Werden Sie, sehr geehrter Herr, die Freundlichkeit haben, mir gegebenenfalls die Kritik H. Dr. K. Grunsky’s gekommen lassen zu werden, 2 damit ich erfahre, bis zu welchen Grade er meinen Ausführungen zu folgen in der Lage war? Ich weiß nämlich nicht, wohin H. Dr. Gr. die Kritik zu plazieren gedenkt.

Would you, dear Sir, be so kind as to arrange for the review by Dr. K. Grunsky to be sent to me 2 when it appears so that I can see to what extent he was capable of following my arguments? You see, I do not know where Dr. Grunsky is intending to place his review.


With best thanks,
Your devoted
