After a disastrous day, one minute was pleasing. I received two rolls with butter, pear and cucumber from the gracious gentleman, who recently was here with Sister G. He shook my hand and brought greetings from the "Seegasse".*

September 25th, 1942:
Last piece of paper. What will I do without the possibility to write? Riddles? I've just tried to lock my leather suitcase and found both locks ruined. We have throngs of people in the room. For example a patient calles (L) came in yesterday. You never know who will enter next. What a spectacle! As I was just cleaning my brushes and combs, my husband came in with a woman  from the criminal police, who will search for the lost suitcase and packages. I might have to go myself and find my package.
