Lieber Hans,

Soeben erhielt ich Deine Karte und beeile mich die Antwort zu ekspedieren. Deine Karte wurde mir durch Frau Oppenhejm, sowie Frau Zeuthen nachgeschickt. Nachdem ich eine Haushaltsschule besucht habe, bin ich jetzt Koch, Herrschaftsdiener, Sekretaer und Gaertner bei einem Dichter Sigfred Pedersen, auf einem Landejendom in Hammersholt bei Lillerød, an der Bahnstrecke Kbh. Hillerød. Meine Leute sind seid Montag auf Fyn, und kommen Anfang naechster Woche zurueck. Komme mich unbedingt besuchen, pr. Rad od. Bahn, bevor meine Leute zurück sind. Du kannst hier wohnen. Rufe mich sofort an: 12-13 od. 18-19: Allerød 213. Komme diese Woche und bleibe evt. auch die naechste hier.
Wir können Fredborg Slot, Kronborg, die Gegend + Kbh. besuchen.
Entschuldige, dass ich schon so lange nicht geschrieben habe, doch will ich es wieder gut machen. Gebe mir sofort Bescheid. Herzl. Grüsse, Walter

Translation

Dear Hans,

Lillerød, 1st July 1943
I just received your card and am rushing to dispatch this reply. Your card was sent to me via Mrs Oppenhejm and Mrs Zeuthen.
As I went to a domestic science school, I am now the cook, butler, secretary and gardener for the poet, Sigfred Pederson, at his farm in Hammersholt near Lillerød, on the railway line KBH. -Hillerød. My people have been on Fyn since Monday and won’t be back until the beginning of next week. You must come and visit, by bike or by train before they come back. You can stay here. Call me immediately: 12-13 or 18-19: Allerød 213. Come this week and perhaps stay until next week.
We can visit the Fredborg Slot, Kronborg, Fredyborg, the area and Kbh. together.
Forgive me that I have not written in so long, but I want to make it up to you. Let me know immediately.
Best wishes, Walter
