About this item
[Postmarked 26 September 1912] Hotel "Der Furstenhof" Berlin Thursday. Dearest Mother. Yesterday morning I saw all Herzfeld's photographs of Samarra - wonderfully interesting. And then I saw Andrae's things in the museum and after lunch I returned to the museum where there are heaps of marvellous things which I have not yet seen. Dr Moritz, who was once curator of the Cairo Library, dined with me and we had a long talk about Mesopotamian geography, of which he is now very full. I spent 4 hours this morning with Herzfeld, looking over and discussing plans and photographs, his and mine. Also I made the acquaintance of his family, nice people.
Now I'm going to tea with Marie v. Bunsen. What with museums and professors my days are now quite full till I leave. It has been well worth while coming - it is always worth while to know what the other people are doing. Ever your affectionate daughter Gertrude
