worry about me. I'm fine though perhaps a little tired. I hope to come
home soon and then I can rest in your arms. I have a great longing for
rest, but my duty to the German people comes before everything else. Don't
forget that the dangers I encounter don't compare with those of our
soldiers at the Front. I thank you for the proof of your affection and ask
you also to thank your esteemed father and your most gracious mother for
their greetings and good wishes. I am very proud of the honor - please
tell them that - to possess the love of girl who comes from such a
distinguished family. I have sent to you the uniform I was wearing during
the unfortunate day. It is proof that Providence has protected me and that
we have nothing more to fear from our enemies.
From my whole heart, your A.H."

am beside myself. I am dying of anxiety now that I know you are in danger.
Come back as soon as possible. I feel as if I am going insane.
weather is beautiful here and everything seems so peaceful that I am
ashamed of myself ... You know I have always told you that I would die if
anything happened to you. From our first meeting on, I have promised
myself to follow you wherever you go, even to death. You know that I live
only for your love.
