On one of the days it turned as warm as summer and we ate dinner outside under the linden trees in front of the house.
This morning started off with a lesson in educational theory and then we set off again from Treseburg with well-provisioned knapsacks. We spent the afternoon on the meadows by the Bode River again.

I’m so glad the cabin has been fixed up again so nicely. And now a very affectionate little kiss on the summer breezes from your Anni Thale, May 31, 1929 Dear Mama and Hilde, Now we are back in Thale again.
