Arnold Zweig

10. ii. 38

I am quite unable to say for what good or bad reasons the despatch or rather the continuation of this letter was delayed. You know it was certainly not indifference on my part. Rather the opposite. I had some correspondence with Dr. Eitingon, arising from André Germain's article, about your plans to move from Vienna. Then I dictated a long essay on the Ten Commandments which I mean to send you as I think you will enjoy it. There is a section in it on the First Commandment which really has acquired meaning only through your Moses. For it affirms that it was Yahweh who delivered the Jews from Egypt. A very necessary step since in that way the peace between the Levites and the Yahwites of Kadesh was sealed. Then I finished my Bonaparte in faffa and am just waiting to get Act V before I send it to you. And finally I am preparing for publication a youthful novel of mine; it was written in 1909 and the story takes place in 1908. I wanted to tell you about this. But there are now such odd things in the papers that I am first of all hastening to enquire how you are and what plans you have for the next few weeks. It is so strange to think that you are not really obliged to live in Vienna and that you are spending your peaceful old age there of your own free will. Please give my warmest greetings to your wife and to Anna and to all your household.
