Dear Professor,

Well, I did it again! I can clearly picture the sad face that you made toward my nonsensical letter. Incidentally, I don't yet know whether you need to withdraw your judgment completely, even if the ucs. caused the nonsense.

Naturally the letter was meant for Rank. I then tried to contact him by telegram to make up for the wayward letter. That failed as well! He just telegraphed me to say that he doesn't understand my telegram. I don't know whether my second, urgent telegram won't have the same fate.

If the mix-up of letters had a meaning, it could only have been the anticipation of my announcing the engagement. In that little letter I wrote details about the matter of Frau G.'s divorce, from which Rank can easily guess the rest.

My life-style is the familiar one. Morning: hospital, afternoon: analyses, evening: Frau G.—The last, to be sure, never alone anymore; for tactical reasons we consider it appropriate to give up our previous free state of togetherness. This will last only a week, after which Frau G. and her sister will move into their newly rented apartment.

Frau G. is recovering gradually, but is not taking the wrenching change in her life easily, which is reflected in her looks and the state of her strength. I hope that will ease up very soon.—

There don't seem to be any serious difficulties to be feared on the part of her husband anymore, at worst irritations, which, to be sure, don't fail to have their effect on Frau G.
