Dear Josef, 
Many thanks for your letter and for the two reprints. I too have 
been quite busy and one of these days, fairly soon I hope, I will send 
you a paper on inflation I am writing for the Keynes Centennial to be 
held in mid-July at King*s College Cambridge. 
For the moment, however, I should like to tell you about our 
summer plans. I am sorry to say that by the time you wrote that you 
are bored with Sils, we had already committed ourselves to take Moe 
and Carry Abramovitz there. Accordingly, we shall be in the Pension 
Privata from July 18 to August 1 with them. It would be nice if you could 
be persuaded to bring the sacrifice of coming one more summer to Sils; 
the more so, because the Abramovitz's tempo is closer to yours than is 
ours, which would facilitate joint excursions on which some walk and others 
take the bus or Schwebebahn. But for the summer of 1984, we are definitely 
willing to follow your lead and try some other part of Switzerland. 
Since I gather from your letter that it is mainly the food you are bored 
with, I should like to make a suggestion. You once complained to me that 
you have more money than you know how to spend; and in view of that I 
suggest that you consider coming to Sils and staying at the Waldhaus. 
An old friend of mine, Leo Lowenthal, a sociologist of the Frankfurter 
Schule, stayed at the Waldhaus last summer with his young wife (he is 82) 
and he liked it very much, partly because there was a great choice on the 
menu and because they were willing to cook for him anything he asked for 
whether it was on the menu or not, so that he could both keep his diet and 
indulge his preferences. Please give it a thought. Leo also said that both 
the hotel and its restaurant were excellent. In any case, we would be 
very happy if you would come — at least for part of the time. We have not 
seen you for such a long time; and this seems to be both the only and a very 
pleasant way of keeping in touch. Let me also add that the Abramovitz*s are 
exceptionally nice and pleasant people, whom you would, I think, enjoy very
