“It is painful indeed to be in such a hurry… being away, but tell your cousin that I only received your letter of July 19 today – I hope you are back – today Saturday 24 I am doing what is necessary to send you the package by the day after tomorrow at the latest – but I see things so delicate, so difficult fortunately half can go and my daughter is here – to copy 4 pages entirely, otherwise I would not be able – and she’s not always there. Fortunately, here in Paris it does not take long, therefore Monday or Tuesday we will send you by registered mail the requested photos and all texts. You can send a card to your cousin to reassure him, but I repeat that my daughter will be there and while I am reviewing a dozen pages most of which can go she is typing the others – I am not taking the time to let him know of it, please be kind enough to do so. Please dear Mr. Betze [sic.] GR.
