To the actress Margarete Walkotte, who had inquired about a relief fund: "Unfortunately, I cannot give you any information about the 500,000 Mark fund. I have not heard anything about it. This, of course, does not prove the falsehood of the newspaper's claim. I will try to find out something specific about it [...]". Moreover, she is upset about a celebratory banquet: "The past secretary of education is holding a banquet at Kroll's with several dozen so-called 'celebrities', and many thousands of artists, scholars and scientists, teachers, technicians, and civil servants are suffering severe hardships, indeed are starving.

This is the much-heralded 'culture' of bourgeois Germany! […]". - On headed paper..
