Many thanks for the gratifying news= OJ 14/45, [72] that your relapse had itself suffered a relapse and that you are striving to regain or normal health! And how is dear little Karl? We have not yet been able to see your sister, since the start of the season gives us us both a great deal to do. From Mr. Hahn, I received a very sweet letter and a very good essay and the truly inspired graphs! I am writing also to him at the same time. Many thanks to you for kindly arranging this.


To all of you, best greetings.
Your
