Lou Andreas-Salomé

Berlin W., Margarethenstr. 12

Dear Professor,

On my return from a short outing I have just found your letter awaiting me; thank you so very much. I am delighted at your promise of your new portrait; during this month it would still reach me here, then in Göttingen (Loufried). In the meantime I have also managed to ferret out the name of the man in Zurich, and in this way I shall have you twice over. What makes so ‘anachronistic’ an impression on you in the Zurich photo seems to me completely contemporary. But your remark is so much more true of the only photos of me that exist that I can scarcely recognize myself in them: they are over a dozen years old!

I too have often reflected on the unpleasantnesses and embarrassments you mention since that time in Munich—just as I am pre-occupied not less but almost more than I was in Vienna with the matters which I owe to you alone. And I often have the strongest desire to find a way of communicating to others something of what has come to mean so much to me; the desire will by its very strength surely find an outlet.
