A card which arrived today from Emden informs us that Jones lost his young wife in an appendicitis operation at the beginning of October.1 Poor fellow, Emden adds. We don't even have the possibility of expressing our condolences directly to him.
Two days ago I sent you a draft of a statute for the administration of the endowment, which has since been transferred to me in the amount of 250 million crowns. I now await your suggestions for amendment, as well as those of the others.
We have now been cut off from three children, Martin, Ernst, and Sophie. We only have cause to worry about the first, about whose fate and where-abouts we haven't a clue.

He dosn't know that the age of chivalry ended with Don Quixote.
