Cotta writing from Berlin. Thanks for sending a letter so soon to cheer her solitude but still regrets she could not accompany her back to Berlin. Very busy with Lyceum business in the day. Mr Loch ( a young Englishman studying in German methods of poor relief and a brother in law of Caroline Peters. See letter of 17 Jul 1887) who had visited them at Rugen called in to see her at the weekend. Thanks her a thousand times for having come.
