Lieber Freund! 1

Wie Sie aus diesem Schreiben ersehen, geht die Sache nun doch ihrem Ende entgegen. Ob endgiltig, ist die grosse Frage. Wenn schon nicht Einstellung, so mindestens – Gott geb´s? – Polizei. Hier lässt sich schon etwas ausrichten.


Herzlichst grüßt Ihr

Dear Friend, 1

As you can see from this letter, the case is now definitely moving to a conclusion. The big question is whether it will be a definitive [verdict]. If not a dismissal, then at least ‒ and there's probably some hope of this ‒ his being passed on to the police. If so, we can arrange something.


With most cordial greetings, Your
