Pages 13-14: Letter to Mr. Eibuschitz (mother’s new husband). Mr. Eibuschitz’s letter of June 2nd was received yesterday. Kassman expresses assurance that he and Alec (brother) are both very happy about their mother’s remarriage, having worried about her living alone in London (“she must have been in rather an unsettled and lonely state”). The wedding was in June. They look forward to meeting him, though it will probably be a long time away.

Discussion of past trips. Mention of a Dr. Winter, whom Kassman met on a Central European mountain holiday and seems to be a mutual friend of his and the new husband’s. Kassman refers to his meeting Dr. Winter as the indirect cause of the marriage.

Ending matter, hopes that he and the mother are both very well.


1/2 page (spread over two), typed. Dated August 21, 1941.
