  Acknowledges receipt of Rizal's book.


  Leitmeritz, Bohemia
27 March 1887

Mr. José Rizal
71-III Jaegerstrasse

Esteemed Friend,

A thousand thanks for your magnificent book[1] about which I shall speak more lengthily later, because now I'm dispirited, my wife and my children Fritz and Dolores being sick with catarrh and my youngest child swallowed an apricot stone which has not been removed yet.

En embrace.

  Faithfully yours,
F. Blumentritt
