„Aufgebot“ ist schon aufgeboten. 2 Ringe sind nun aktuell. Wie kommen wir also zu Löbl? Adresse, bitte. Hoffentlich kommen wir schon nächsten Sonntag, - Schuhe haben wir ja Gottsei dank!- Hinaus, wir schreiben aber zuvor. Luft-Hunger plagt uns entsetzlich!


Auf Wiedersehen

"Banns of marriage" have already been published! 2 Rings are now a topical issue. So how do we get to Löbl? Address, please. We hope to come as soon as next Sunday. – At last we have shoes, thank God! – [We can't wait to get] out there, but we will write ahead of time – we are just desperate for air!


See you again soon,
