•^ear Josef, 
This is to let you know that I shall definitely 
be in Vienna between the l4th and 17th July and would very much 
like to have a chance of seeing you. It would also be nice if you 
could keep open the evening of the 15th or l6th July (Saturday or 
Sunday), to give me a chance of inviting you for a dinner at the 
Weisser Schornsteinfeger or a similar place. It is true that we 
will be quite a crowd (Elisabeth, my daughter Cathie, and an old 
friend, Bernice Hamilton, who is coming with us to Hungary); but 
we two can sit at one end of the table and have a quiet chat. 
I suggest that on arrival, I give you a ring; and we can then agree 
on the exact time and detail of our meeting. 
I reserved rooms for all of us at the Pertschy in the 
Habrsburgergasse for our few days 1 stay in Vienna on the way to 
Budapest; but we will be back in Vienna from Budapest on 26 July 
for a single night in order to board the London plane the following 
morning, on 27 July. For that nightthe Pertschy would only have a 
"fiiesenzimmer fur 4% which we would like to avoid if at all possible. 
I am wondering therefore if I could impose upon you to try and reserve 
for that single night (Wednesday, 26 July), for the four of us, in any 
hotel or pension not too expensive, either one double and two single rooms 
or two double rooms, with at least one of them with two beds. My hope is 
that you .could do this by telephone and without spending more than, say, 
20 minutes in arranging it. Should it be more complicated and more time 
consuming than that, please forget about the whole thing — I dare say 
we can survive the inconvenience and lack of privacy of one night in a 
In any case, I greatly look forward to seeing you soon.
