Lieber Herr Professor v. Cube ! 1

H. Voß 2 schrieb mir endlich vor paar Tagen, er werde nach Wien kommen, hänge an der Idee der Kurse, weil er nicht genügend bemittelt sei u.s.w. 3 Er trug das schmerzlichste Bekenntnis mit rührender Würde vor, also erwiderte ich, er möge kommen, die Sache kann nur mündlich ausgetragen werd[en,] ich würde mein Möglichstes tun. Nun wissen Sie auch das Weitere.


Mit besten Grüßen von mir u. meiner Frau
Ihr

Dear Professor von Cube, 1

Mr. Voss 2 finally wrote to me a few days, to say that he will come to Vienna; he is clinging to the idea of courses because he does not have sufficient means, 3 etc. He expressed this most painful admission with touching dignity, and so I replied that he may come: the subject matter can only be transmitted orally, and I would do my best. Now you, too, know the further course of things.


With best greetings from me and my wife,
Yours,
