Floriz am Abend zu dritt bei uns u. hernach im Caféhaus. Viel Raum nimmt begreiflicherweise die Debatte über Dr. Frühmanns Meinung ein.

Lie-Liechen unter dem Eindruck der Bach-Aufführung: 1 Bach gibt Gott zurück, was er von ihm erhalten. — Was den Reichen die Schaulust auf Reisen, das ist der Menge die Schaulust im Kino.

Floriz at our place in the evening (the three of us), and afterwards at the coffee house. Much time is understandably taken up by the debate about Dr. Frühmann's opinion.

*

Lie-Liechen, under the influence of the Bach performance: 1 Bach returns to God that which he has received from him. — What the curiosity towards taking trips is to the wealthy, the curiosity of going to the movies is to the masses.
