Dear Master, 1

From a gloomy hotel room I notify you of my new postal address: Milan (2),
Steno Post No. 67,
Italy

From there I will always receive everything. We are searching enthusiastically for suitable dwellings outside of Milan. As soon as I have found something and am at peace I will write to you in detail. For today only the warmest greetings to you and your dear wife from both of us


ever your thankful,
[signed:] Walter Dahms
