Sehr geehrter Herr Direktor! 2

Wäre es nicht möglich, daß ich mindestens einen Teil der Korrekturen 3 über die Weihnachtsferien nach Haus kriegen könnte? Ich möchte gern vermeiden, daß im Jänner, Februar gar zu viel zusammenstößt.


Mit ausgezeichneter Hochachtung

Dear Director, 2

Might it not be possible for me to get at least a portion of the proofs 3 at home over the Christmas holidays? I should very much like to avoid having too many things crowding into January and February.


With kind regards,
Your devoted
