My dear Miss Addams,

Being in Geneva for one day -- I am generally coming here on Wednesday to look for the work of the Office during the holiday of Miss Glücklich -- I find these letters which were prepared for being sent to you and have been forgotten.

Miss Wössner, who has been engaged for some weeks for the work of the office, found this morning, in opening the magazine, Friend's Intelligencer, a little notice about your health. So I know that at this time, you have left the hospital in [Tokyo] and you are having a convalescent [sojourn] in Nikko, a place I always wanted to see. I hope you have a very pleasant time there with Miss Smith and I see you in imagination under the beautiful cryptomerias.

I think the summer school business are going on very well. There ↑are↓ already 130 applications, 40 from England and a good number also from the countries with depreciated valuta. It is very encouraging. I would like to go to Podebrady, but it is impossible in my present conditions of life and I have also much work.

But I feel very happy in Gland with Miss Thomas and for my little Pierre, it is a wonderful place to grow up.

Hoping to hear soon that you are safely arrived home and quite well, with my love to you and your friend, I am, dear Miss Addams,

Yours

Marguerite Gobat. [signed]
