Besten Dank für Briefchen. 2 Wir kommen Mittwoch [October 11] gleich nach der Jause (Kaff aus Br. kommt ½3h) hinaus; leider geht es vorher nicht, denn heute: Elias ½5‒½6, morgen: Weisse u. Brünauer ab ½5. Alles andere mündlich!

Vrieslander kommt gegen 20t. d.M., so schrieb er mir heute. Also es geht. 3

Über deinen Zustand selbst besser mündlich: ich bringe dir ein merkwürdiges Dokument, das dich sofort heulen müßte, ich sage u. wiederhole: sofort!


Auf Wiedersehen

Dear Floriz, 1

Many thanks for your short letter. 2 We will come on Wednesday [October 11], leaving immediately after the afternoon snack (Kaff from Brno is coming at 2.30); sadly we can't get away before then, because today: Elias 4.30‒5.30, tomorrow: Weisse and Brünauer from 4.30 on. Everything else when we meet!

Vrieslander is coming on about the 20th of the month, as he wrote to me today. So it goes. 3

On your situation itself, better when we meet: I shall bring a remarkable document for you to see, one that is bound to make you weep forthwith ‒ I repeat: forthwith!


Until we meet
[signed:] Your H.

Best wishes from Lie-liechen, who today has a mountain of material to write up.
