OJ 5/18, [3a] : 12-2-30

Handwritten letter from Schenker to Jonas, dated December 2, 1930

Sehr geehrter Herr Doktor!

Da es bei Ihnen um etwas Eigenes geht, wie ich es noch praktisch noch nicht erfahren habe, so wollen Sie mir der Kürze halber den von Ihnen gewünschten Text vorzuschlagen, den ich Ihnen alsbald von mir mit Änderungen oder auch ohne Änderungen geschrieben[,] einschicke. Genieren Sie sich nicht.

Gern bestätige ich, daß Sie den {2} Kern des Problems gut erfaßt haben, da Sie eine so glückliche Wortfassung bringen.1

Mit bestem Gruße,
Ihr

Meine Frau erwidert Ihre freundlichen Grüße

Dear Doctor,

As it is in your case a matter of something individual, of which I have as yet no practical experience, will you, to be brief, suggest the text that you would like, which I will then immediately send with changes or perhaps without changes. Don’t be timid.

I gladly confirm that you have grasped the core of the problem well, as you achieve such an apt verbal formulation.1

With best greeting,
Yours,
[ sign’d: ] H. Schenker
December 2, 1930

My wife reciprocates your cordial greetings
