Lieber, geehrter Herr Dr Jonas!

H. v. Hob.1 kommt Mittwoch, spätestens Donnerstag nach Wien (mit Frau) u. steigt im Cottage-Sanatorium, Wien, XVIII, Sternwartestr. 74 ab. – Es freut mich zu hören, daß es Ihnen in der Gesundheit nun besser geht. –

Hoffentlich hat sich Dr Ftw.2 Ihnen gegenüber besser betragen als Dr R. Strauss hier, dessen {recto} Auftreten, vielmehr Nichtauftraten hier, wie ich lese, Befremden erregte. Lassen Sie davon bald etwas hören. Mit besten Grüßen u Wünschen von mir u. meiner Frau.

Ihr [ sign’d: ] H Schenker

Dear Dr. Jonas,

Mr. van Hoboken1 arrives Wednesday, Thursday latest, in Vienna (with his wife) and will be stopping at the Cottage-Sanitorium, Vienna XVIII, Sternwartestrasse 74. —I am pleased to hear that your health is now better.

It is to be hoped that Dr. Furtwängler2 has behaved better toward you than Dr. Richard Strauss here, whose {recto} support, or rather nonsupport, has, as I read, caused annoyance. Let me have word about it soon. With best greetings from my wife and me,

[ sign'd: ] H. Schenker
