Lieber verehrter Meister, 1

Ihrem Besuche sehen wir nun schon mit wahrer Ungeduld entgegen. Es hat manches Hindernis gegeben. Bin eine Woche im Bett gelegen, auch die Kleine war nicht ganz wohl! Ihnen beiden geht es hoffentlich sehr gut. Wann könnten wir Sie also erwarten, vielleicht schon diesen Sonntag?


Von uns dreien die herzlichsten Grüsse Ihnen beiden!
Ihr

Dear revered Master, 1

We are now anxiously looking forward to your visit. There had been many obstacles: I lay in bed for a week, and even the little one was not entirely well! We hope that you are both well. When, then, can we expect you, perhaps as early as this Sunday?


From the three of us, most cordial greetings to the two of you!
Yours,
[signed:] Hans
