Letter from Egon Schiele to Margarete Partonek
(Tulln 1890–1918 Vienna)
What were you looking at yesterday at ¼ 8 hr when you were still with Miss Herm.[ine] B.and Miss L. Schimpf?
Please write something to me again, I would be very pleased.
Are you perhaps mad at me when I say “Good day” or “Greet God”?
Beloved, make my wish come true and write something to me!
The word “Sie” [you]** sounds so strange, won’t you drop the “Sie” and switch to a different one? — — — —
You (“you”) must pardon my scribblings, I could not write otherwise, since I’m away in danger.
Be kissed my Gretl.
ES. [Egon Schiele]
MARG. [Margarete] PARTONEK
