Sehr geehrter Herr Doktor,

nein, so tyrannisch bin ich doch nicht, Sie in der Verwerthung Ihrer Arbeiten irgend zu geniren. Geben Sie ruhig dem kleinen Mamooth, 1 was Sie wollen.

Die „Zeit“ ist eine böse Enttäuschung. So wenig hätte ich doch unserem H.[ermann] B.[ahr] nich zugetraut. Aber vielleicht wirds d noch besser. 2


Besten Gruß Ihnen u. Gelber 3
Von Ihrem

Dear Dr. [Schenker] ,

No, I am not at all so tyrannical as to hamper you in any way from using your own works. You are free to give the little mammoth 1 whatever you please.

Die Zeit is a terrible disappointment. I wouldn't have expected so little even from our H[ermann] B[ahr] . But perhaps it will yet turn out better. 2


Best greetings to you and Gelber, 3
