Scope and content

The letter is not divided into paragraphs. It is written in German hand with very occasional words in Roman letters. This letter to Anna Brodsky is written by a woman who has never met Anna although they do have friends in common. The poor woman has had terrible health and financial problems and unloads her heart to Anna. We may well doubt whether Anna ever read the letter since the writer requests that it should be burned after being read. A wealthy "Onkel" has helped with medical expenses but has not supplied her with clothes. Though poor himself, Dlabac has helped greatly. Benis, Ernst Hacker and Frau Rothe also feature in this script. The letter appears to be lacking the concluding pages and thus we cannot identify the writer. We can only surmise that she was living in Vienna and writing just after the Great War. Not found, 10 Apr 2006
