Scope and content

Olga is glad to have heard from Anna and to know that they are well but is very distressed about poor Leon. She wants to go to him but cannot afford to. She has a guaranteed income where she is but would not be able to work in France. She has aged greatly externally but is still strong although less sensitive and hardened. She needs to hear Adolph play and perhaps change. Every one at Odessa, Cherson and Moscow is alive and suffering. Olga begs for the truth about Leon. She does not want him to go back to chemistry but desires him to go in for agriculture, for which Europe has great need. The letter is in French and is dated 24 Jan 1920.
