Ich fragte meinen Mann soeben: "wie soll ich ihn denn anreden?" und oben steht seine Antwort, die meinem Herzen am meisten wohl thut. Gottlob, sein Befinden ist derart, dass er gestern zum ersten mal gewagt hat von 1/2 10 - bis Abends um 7 aufzubleiben, d.h. angezogen auf dem Bett liegend, aber doch wiederholt aufstehend und auch am Schreibtisch sitzend. Die Nacht war nach diesem Versuch (nach 6 monatl. Krankenlager mit täglichem Fieber) gut, und auch heute Befinden u. Aussehen verhältnissmssig befriedigend. Das bisherige Kalte u. stürmische Wetter hat seine Genesung sehr gehindert. Heute ist milderes Regenwetter. Viell. kommt die Sonne heraus und mein geliebter vielgeprüfter (unsäglich geduldiger) Eheliebster kann wenigstens auf dem schönen Balkon sitzen. Wir hoffen auch den Seider wie sonst, wenn auch in stiller Zweisamkeit begehen zu können. Für Ihr gütiges Anerbieten die Correctur am 2 Bd. besorgen zu wollen, herzlichen Dank. Lazarus weiss, was ein Oberrabbiner von Szegedin zu thun hat. (followed by a sentence not legible ?). aber er wird Ihr Anerbieten gern annehmen wen(n) auch die Sache weit im Felde ist da die vergangenen 6 Monate für die Arbeit verloren waren. Wir senden Ihnen "Lazarus' Sprüche", seinen Vortrag "Was heisst" usw. - und kleines biographisches Fragment, das mal Sie, wie wenige Menschen interessieren wird. (followed by a sentence not legible ?). Mit besten Grüssen and Ihre Lieben von uns beiden und herzlichsten Wünschen für einen glücklichen Sonntag (?) Ihre Nahida Ruth Lazarus. Lassen Sie - später bei froher Musse doch wieder ein Blättchen herfliegen! Unsere Adresse ist immer dieselbe.". Bookseller Inventory # 34076
