Dear Professor Veblen,
I was very pleased to receive a sign of life from
you.[2]
If Mr. Tracy Y. Thomas
comes to Berlin, I shall be pleased to work with him. However, it will not be easy
to find a sufficiently interesting research topic for him. In any event, I will do what

I am sending the manuscript to you instead of to Prof.
Adam[s][5]

this manuscript to him with kind regards.
With best wishes to you and your wife, I am yours.

impressions, not a carefully weighed argument pertaining to the
problem.[3]
In utmost respect.
