Dear Mr. Hauer,
I am asking you to entirely fulfill the wish I wrote in my letter to you a few days ago, if possible, however uncomfortable this might be for you and me, even if at the moment it might be somewhat difficult for you; I hope that you won’t frown at me this time either; I believe in your kindness, with warmest greetings
