Geehrter, lieber Herr Dr Jonas!

Ihren Aufsatz1 (den ich hier flüchtig kursieren lasse, schon um auf Ihr Buch2 aufmerksam zu machen) konnte ich H. v.Hob.3 noch nicht nachschicken, weil mir seine gegenwärtige Adresse nicht bekannt war. Nun, da ich erfuhr, daß er den südfranzösischen Ort verlassen hat u. Holland anflieht, ehe er Ende Oktober Wien besucht, ist es mir wieder unmöglich, die beiden Hefte ihm nachzuschicken, da ich seine holländische Adresse nicht kenne, es sei denn, daß Ich den Umweg über {recto} München mache. Soll ich das tun oder warten, bis er kommt?

mit bestem Gruß,
Ihr

Dear Dr. Jonas,

I was not yet able to forward your essay1 (which I am hastily having circulated here, just to draw attention to your book2) to Mr. van Hoboken,3 because his current address is unknown to me. Since I learned that he left the place in southern France and flies to Holland before visiting Vienna at the end of October, it is again impossible for me to forward him the two issues, as I do not know his Dutch address—unless I take the detour by way of {recto} Munich. Shall I do that or wait until he arrives?

With best greeting,
Yours,
[ sign’d: ] H. Schenker
