Kl. kommt zu uns diesen Samstag, da will ich noch genauer alles durchsprechen. Wie geht es bei Euch? Ein Wörtchen!

Floriz! 1

My letter to Klenau 2 went to Munich, and I have just received his reply= OJ 12/11, [10]: he is quite prepared to write to his brother-in-law, Dr. S.; he says that Schnabel would of course be more crucial than his brother-in-law. Klenau is coming to see us this Saturday; then I shall discuss everything with him more specifically. How are you all? Send me a line!


From me and LieLiechen, best greetings
