  He will write Willkomm and Nordmann - Through rose-colored glasses.

   

Basel,[1] 3 June 1887

  My very dear Friend,

We arrive here today and tomorrow we leave for Geneva. I received your affectionate post card and as soon as I am in Geneva resting, I shall write Messrs. Willkomm and Nordmann.[2] If I have not done it yet, it is because I would like to write them something more serious than a letter written during the trip. With you I can permit myself to write careless letters, for you know how to excuse any fault of mine and to see everything we do through a cheerful optimistic crystal.

I wish you all good health, including Mr. Willkomm.

  Rizal
