                       Honoured Doctor!

I’ve received your letter of the 14th of this month and the proofs of the summary. I’m glad that it turned out to your satisfaction. I myself haven’t read the proofs yet – this explains the presence of such oversights as the use of object instead of subject and so on. I’ll carry out your proposals for changes in the text in certain places. As for offprints, I think they can be obtained. In this regard, I have to talk to Professor Balzer. I make no claims as to literary property regarding the summary and don’t wish it to be indicated anywhere that it derives from me. The summaries printed in the Reports of the scientific Society are the work either of the actual authors of the papers presented at meetings or of the members of the Society presenting the papers. Which of these cases applies is never mentioned in the Reports, so let it be that way now.

            Your habilitation discussion is scheduled for the 25th of this month, i.e. next Wednesday afternoon. However, it may be that it’ll take place only on Thursday, the 26th of this month; that would happen if there is insufficient time for the department Council to settle all matters placed on the agenda for the Wednesday meeting, and some of these matters ‒ your habilitation dissertation among them ‒ would be postponed to the continuation of the meeting, which would take place the following day, on Thursday. Your habilitation lecture will take place on Friday or Saturday.

            We’ll see each other very soon, then – meanwhile, I send cordial regards.
