Dear Stella:

I am in despair. I wrote to my lawyer
and to our factotum , Otto Holfmann to find
out details about the accident and the
whereabouts and condition of the car, but have
not heard a word. Chester postpones h[]
visit to Vienna and I dont know his plans.
Could you possibly ring Holfmann to see if
he knows anything .

Adress. Wien VII, Schweighofergasse 4/21
Tel : 93/88/155. .

The Registration Number of my car is W. 618-948.


Wystan .

my lawyer

In his letter from 4 January 1969, Auden refers to his "old lawyer", Walter Redlich, as "supervising the case". Among the Auden papers held by the Archiv der Zeitgenossen, there is a letter to Hugo K. from 11 January 1969, in which Auden informs him that Redlich had retired and the case would be handled by a new lawyer, Erich Mikesch.
