Böckstein, August 18

Dear Dr. Jonas,

The mail just returned the enclosed card to me.1 Thus I am sending it herewith and note at this opportunity that Hoboken2 and his wife visited us here and remained from Tuesday to Thursday. They were both extremely cordial, nice and correct. Thus what I wish for you and for me should proceed.

With best greetings from both of us,
[ sign’d: ] H. Schenker
