Dear Josef, 
Many thanks for your kindness in reserving the rooms for 
us* I enclose a cheque for £4l, which the bank assures me is the 
equivalent of Austrian #1,120. I greatly look forward to seeing you; 
and let us by all means make it Saturday at the Weisser Rauchfangkehrer 
and not, as I foolishly and inadvertently put it, at the Schornsteinfeger. 
But if you don f t want us to avoid you at the occasions of our projected 
many future visits to Vienna, then you must let us invite you for a 
As our return to California approaches, we are getting cold 
feet about it and wonder whether it would not have been wiser to settle 
down here instead. We shall probably make a compromise and return to 
Europe at least for summer holidays as often and as long as our energy 
and financial situation permit. Hence my hint about/many future returns 
to Vienna. 
I am enclosing a paper I gave at Aberdeen; it is not very good 
and again on the old subject of inflation. ^ wish I would have kept to my 
old habit of thinking longer and publishing less rather than doing what I 
am doing now, which is the reverse. 
Now that I know you have become affluent, I should like to 
press you even more to travel. Many of my old friends and acquaintances 
seem to deal with the problem of retirement by traveling more and 
visiting their various friends in outlying parts of the world; and it 
seems to work very well as a means of keeping one alert and active. 
I realize that your dietary problems make that a little difficult but 
surely not impossible. But mo^e about all that when we meet. 
With best regards until soon,
