Sehr geehrter Herr Doktor! 1

B[e]sten Dank für Ihren freundlichen Brief, 2 den ich an seine eigentliche Adresse weiter leite. 3 Ich habe gestern erfahren, dass der Hofjuwelier Louis Koch die Meinert-Autographen nach dessem Tode übernommen hat, und ihm in meinen Angelegenheiten sogleich geschrieben. Vielleicht tun Sie in Ihrer das gleiche. 4 Ich reise am {recto} 3. Oktober mit müden Gebeinen nach Sizilien.


Viele Grüsse von Ihrem ergebenen

Dear Doctor, 1

Many thanks for your friendly letter, 2 which I am forwarding to his proper address. 3 Yesterday, I learned that the court jeweler, Louis Koch, has taken over the Meinert autograph manuscripts following the latter's death, and have written to him immediately about matters that concern me. Perhaps you might do the same about yours. 4 I am off {recto} to Sicily on October 3 with weary bones.


Cordial greetings from Yours truly,
