28 Terrassen Ufer: Dresden.
Sept. 30.

Have recd postcard & (today) letter with Memoranda. Answered postcard in a letter of Sept. 26th. Will look out for Dr Knortz's book but to make sure you might send me translation if you have any sheets to spare.

We are going, probably, to print our essays on our own account & distribute them ourselves to booksellers. Would there be any use in sending you 100 copies to give to some German bookseller in New York? If so we will send them. My essay has not much translation in it, but I think of appending a complete transl. of some one of the longer poems.

(Note changed address)

T. W. Rolleston.
