"It’s good to hear from you. To know you bursting with energy--the spirit of life. Good to know you are writing and good to know the child is mending and that you have more time for yourself. I feel as utterly useless even though I am on the mend. Is slow work…How stupid for me to have collapsed. When you happen in town…it could be arranged for you to see me ….” Signed, “Your old Stieglitz.”.
Stieglitz likely refers to the heart attack he suffered in early 1938.
