Gift of Eva Cecovickova-Novotna
Id no. 1564.91, Correspondence, German
The text translates: Dear Hans, through Hede I learned today of the death of your dear mother. When I spoke to her last, I did not think that within a short time fate would rob you of your dearest being. As I know how close you were to your dear departed mother, I can also appreciate your great loss. Because of my illness I am unable to give your dear mother the last honor. - I will miss her sunny disposition. I pray to God and hope you will soon get over your pain. Your Egon.
