In reply to your cable of Nov. 10, I answered today, as follows: [In French]
"ask Consulate in Stuttgart to send affidavits to Marseilles."
Because we no longer can write to Germany, I am asking that you do it for us.
The Jewish Aid Society has initiated its activities here, however nothing will
move that quickly and we will be glad if our case will come up by next spring,
providing the authorities in the U.S. will issue the proper directives.
Otherwise all will be in vain. [Perhaps a reference, among other obstacles, to
the fact that their affidavits would expire by spring.]
It is to be hoped you received my letter of last week, as well as those from
Mother. I have not seen the latter in about 2 weeks, but news from her reaches
me almost daily...May God compensate you for all the sacrifices you are
compelled to bring in our behalf...
So far I have not been able to meet Uncle Sigmund, whereas I saw Bernhard twice
up to now. [Concluding phrases and wishes.]
