Thank you for your detailed report. You have done everything splendidly I will write Liesch when I'm in Berlin, because I have no documentation here and can't answer his questions off-hand. We live in the castle that you see on the card, but it is much more beautiful in reality, it has a beautiful courtyard with colonnades etc. I will come to Berlin on the 1st or 2nd of September. How long will you stay there?" Fine condition.
