O., on May 4, 1938.
Esteemed Mr. [Nordhoff].
Please pardon my conduct, but I must address this letter to you. I want to ask you a great favor: that you grant me a chance to talk with you on the 11. or 12. of June. Please understand me correctly: I must speak with you.
Should it be impossible for you to get there, then I ask that you tell me whether I could address the matter with you in writing.
I take the opportunity to send you best wishes,
Yours, Hilde [Laube].
P.S. I apologize for the lack of return address. I would not like to create embarrassment for you.
