Lou Andreas-Salomé

[Vienna, 27 Feb. 1913]

Dear Professor,

I owed you an answer last evening,14 when you passed me the note asking me how I had found Sunday's lecture.15 But what could be said in a few words you knew already; the lecture gave me much food for thought, I started a long letter to you, not only about it, but about other things we had discussed on Sunday—and then finally I saw how absurd it was. For what I get from you is far more than anything I can reciprocate, even if I were to see you very often or if I were to bombard you with letters. But all this does not matter; to receive these things from you has been the great joy of this winter, and to assimilate them within myself will be the joy of this coming summer.
