Alix von Cotta to Nelly

Scope and Content

Cotta writing from Berlin. Thanks her for her letter about her Swiss holiday; she returned on 15 Aug and found her young friend awaiting her; busy preparing the new programme; Berlin is a deadly place at that time of the year. The final teachers' examinations the last week in Sep and after the exam her little friend will leave Berlin a parting they both dread as it will probably be a final one.
