O., on July 25, 1938

Dear Mr. [Nord­hoff]!

No one could have brought me a hap­pier gree­ting this morning than you did with your cathar­tic mes­sa­ge. Becau­se I know that you are out of dan­ger; you can finish healing on your own. How good that you still have 14 days at your dis­po­sal. Use it well! I am now so hap­py and thank­ful.

Oh, if only we had gone tog­e­ther at the same time, perhaps this wouldn’t have hap­pen­ed,“ you wro­te in your last let­ter – and if only it could have been. I would have spa­red no effort to make you well, wit­hout let­ting them noti­ce anything at home. Or would you not think I was capa­ble?
