I am in possession of both your letters of December 3 and 11. I will come back to them, but first I want to report something more important in all haste.
I noted that in the prevailing climate our previous patrons Garami and Bárczy have no influence with Bódy. For that reason I am utilizing my chance personal acquaintance with Dr. Baránsky1 (a lawyer), who is assuming a leading role in one of the Christian parties and is getting interested in humanitarian affairs of the city, and I sent him to Bódy.
Bódy received him amicably and promised on the same day (yesterday) to send a letter to our friend in Steinbruch, in which he declares himself prepared to enter into negotiations. At the same time he shared with Dr. Baránsky the contents of the unfavorable opinion about Ψα2 which came from a hospital physician. He also admitted that he would prefer that the money be earmarked for child welfare purposes. He requested further 1.) a scientific rejoinder on my part to the opinion of the hospital physician (Director Dr. Wenhardt), 2.) a detailed recommendation about the planned finances: personnel costs, local rent charges, etc., etc.
This letter should soon be in our friend's hands. Now, my suggestion is to send an urgent telegram to Herr Bódy, to the effect that the power to negotiate the details is being transferred to me, and to request that Bódy contact me as soon as possible.
