Dear Professor,

For the time being, accept only my cordial thanks for your last mailings.1 I will get back to them, as well as to the previous ones, only in the summer since obligations as well as the general crisis disallow enough free time at the moment.

With best wishes,
Yours most respectfully,
[ sign’d: ] H. Schenker

Acks recent mailings.
