To Cornelia Brunner
Dear Frau Prasidentin, 2 August 1960
I still owe you my express thanks for the wonderful, spirit-infused gift that ﬂew into the house on my birth- day.
You have endowed this birthday of mine with incredible generosity, so that I stand there quite ashamed beside all the magniﬁcence, with the painful feeling that I can no longer give the Club what would otherwise be given so willingly.
I have to adapt myself with considerable eﬀort to the role of recipient in which I have been living for nearly ﬁfteen years.
In this respect the wine is a great tonic, and I am very grateful for the bountiful selection. Please give my best thanks to the Club members as well!
Very sincerely yours,
