Dear Master, 1

On the 14th I will travel through Switzerland, as I still have meetings in Zurich, St. Moritz and Basel. In Basel I will meet up with my entire family two days later and travel to Berlin, where we will be on the 14th. The almanac is still being developed and I hope to bring it all to a successful conclusion, which will bring from me an outpouring of happiness. Warmest greetings to you and your dear {recto} wife from all of us.


ever you true devotee,
