In part: "Father requested me to ask whether you have yet finished using the numbers of the 'Amerikanische Bierbrauer' which he loaned you. If so, would you kindly return them by mail? If not, please send me the numbers of the 'hefte', so that father can obtain duplicates of the publishers which later will not be possible as the hefte containing the history of brewing are being largely bought up...."
