“As dictated to granny Hildegard (you know: the old woman who was sleeping so long in the morning and was always too late at the breakfast table).
I miss you so much and I miss your large, wonderful park. My garden in Essen is much smaller. I miss the delicious smell of bacon and eggs which crept into my nose every morning and a little bit of it is still there.
And last not least I miss your whole family, who had an eye upon me when my family went to Bath and other interesting places.
I hope very much to see you again.
