Lou Andreas-Salomé


[Postmark: Göttingen 21(?).5.16]

Dear Professor,

I must certainly have expressed myself badly in my letter: I meant, at any other time the little book would already have appeared in print, but that now it is still on my desk. And since your book is about to appear I will in any case wait for its publication, so that I shall not have read only the four essays in the Journal70 before finishing my own. For this reason it is a matter of great importance to me that I should have understood each essay quite accurately, that I should not have interpreted anything amiss; and that is the point that worried me last time. The way one assimilates things afterwards varies from one person to another, but I am particularly anxious to avoid any sort of misunderstanding as to your meaning. That at least is my honest and sincere endeavour. Many thanks for your letter and many good wishes from your

Lou Andreas
