Sehr geehrter Herr Direktor! 1

Da mir selbst noch bis heute kein Exemplar der „Ornam.“ zugekommen ist, nehme ich an, daß die Druckerei irgendwie noch im Rückstande damit ist. Und doch, ist es schade um dem letzten Rest der Ferien, dieen die Mehrzahl der Ihnen in meinem Briefe von vorgestern 2 [?hin]gegebenen Herren sehr wohl (mit Muße) der Lectura widmen könnte. Sie wissen, September ist bereits Saison in Deutschland, also Arbeit u. Referat für die Herren.


Mit ausgez. Hochachtung

Dear Director, 1

Since as of today no copy of Ornamentation has yet reached me, I assume that the printers are still somewhat in arrears with it. It is such a shame about the last vestiges of the holidays, which the majority of the gentlemen passed on to you in my letter of the day before yesterday 2 could very well (at their leisure) dedicate to reading. As you know, the season starts as early as September in Germany, hence [so does] work and lecturing for the gentlemen.


With kind regards
