Appearing in Public
Prague, Sunday, 14 June 1925
I got your letter of June 5 which arrived in Warsaw the 12th. I find that
[delay] excessive... I arrived in Prague this morning and will leave tomorrow
evening for Jachymow. Im bewildered by the life Im leading
and incapable of telling you anything intelligent. I ask myself, what
fundamental vice is there in the organization of humanity that makes this
sort of agitation, to a certain degree, necessary? Mrs. Meloney [the American
journalist who encouraged Marie to expose herself to the press] would
call it, Dignifying science. And whats undeniable is
the sincerity of everyone who does these things and their conviction that
they are necessary.
Here Im in a magnificent apartment, bedroom, sitting-room and bathroom,
overlooking the river bordered by hills, and full of flowers they gave
me at the train stationmostly roses since its their season.
Unfortunately its gray, and Im afraid it will rain.... With
from Correspondance p. 255.
