My dear little Sonya, Today, August 5th, I have just received your two letters; they came together, the one of July 11th (!!) and the one of July 23rd. You see that the post works more slowly than if I were in New York. But the books you sent me came to hand earlier. Heartfelt thanks for everything. I am so sorry that I had to leave you in your present situation; how I should have liked to stroll with you through the fields once more, or watch the sunset from the bay-window in your kitchen ... Helmi, too sent me a long postcard describing his journey. Thanks so much also for the Hölderlin. But you must not squander so much money on me; I really don’t like it. Thanks so much for the hamper of good things and for the beans. Write soon, for then perhaps I shall get another letter before the end of the month. Warmest love. Keep your heart up. You are never out of my thoughts. Much love to Karl... (From : Marxists.org.)
