Sehr Geehrter Herr Doktor! 1

Bestens danke ich Ihnen für die Zuweisung Ihrer neuesten Arbeit, die mich freilich furchtbar Altersmüde vorfindet, aber mir viele Belehrung für eingestreute bessere Gesundheit verspricht. Die Molesta senectus drückt mich ungewöhnlich. Ich hoffe, dass Sie frisch und arbeitsfähig sind.


In alter Hochschätzung
[signed:] Dr. Th. Frimmel.

Dear Dr. [Schenker], 1

Many thanks for sending me your most recent work, which, indeed, finds me thoroughly age-wearied, but promises much instruction for intermittent periods of better health. Burdensome old age oppresses me uncommonly. I hope that you are refreshed and primed for work.


With time-honored respect,
[signed:] Dr. Theodor Frimmel
