Dear Jones,

The first window opening in our cage. I can write you directly and a closed letter! I was extremely glad to hear, that five years of war and separation did not succeed in deteriorating your kind feelings for our crew and very sorry that your health is not the same as your friendship. But I hope the latter will recover as the former will remain.1

I am extraordinarily obliged to you for bringing with you so much of my daughters things, she wanted them badly. We have grown hungry beggars all of us here.

But you shall hear no complaints. I am still upright and hold myself not responsible for any part of the worlds nonsense. Psychoanalysis is flourishing I am glad to learn from everywhere, I trust science will prove a consolation for you too.
