Things were quite nice at my ex-wife’s.[5] Grossmann has signs of paralysis (legs, tongue). It must be a brain disorder.[6] His intelligence, however, is in good shape. Hopefully it won’t get worse. I didn’t enjoy much in Geneva.[7] The thing is not bad at all, but it’s no job for me. Eisler will possibly get a position at the Institute but not a “top” one.[8] Goyim have it easier.

However, it is not great that I know from my own experience.[2] Only lying down and enormous patience can
