Vienna, December 6, 1915 IX., Berggasse 19
I would rather write to you in Pápa, since the mails are now totally unpredictable; I would hope that your three expectations will be fulfilled before Christmas, and I invite you to spend some of your holidays in Vienna. Enterprises of any kind are now out of the question for private individuals. At our place you can at least get some of your flour.
I am certainly busy, but moderately so, six and a half hours, and amply accessible for all discussions. A work, as you have undertaken it, is never a pure pleasure; for me it was always a tormenting struggle. Why should you have it better?
I can report to you a great diplomatic success. Heller has agreed to take both of my books,1 and in recompense maintain the Zeitschrift. I had some doubts about him, but he showed himself to be reliable and enthusiastic. For the lectures he wants to pay 100 crowns per galley, make double editions from the beginning, and let me have even more of a share in the profits in the event of a second printing. I am supposed to deliver a piece of the manuscript on January 1, 1916; the first delivery will appear in February.
