Letter XII. 1888

To Olympius1889

Before you did write me a few words:  now not even a few.  Your brevity will soon become silence.  Return to your old ways, and do not let me have to scold you for your laconic behaviour.  But I shall be glad even of a little letter in token of your great love.  Only write to me.
