Dear Master, 1

I chase my letter= OJ 15/16, [65] to you with great speed by this card, to point out the following printing errors in your copy:

  • p. 18, line 8 from the bottom: Herkulanum, not Herkulaneum!
  • p. 19: zur Lehre von der Horizontalen (the n is missing) 2

In the event that you have not noticed them, there is, I hope, enough time to correct them.


Most cordially yours,
[signed:] Hans
