the 28 July 1914
Dear Professor !
Hereby I make my request to join the group Viennese (1). I like this group because I think I can at best and deepen my worship and my admiration for you as my attachment. I look forward to seeing you in Dresden (2). You are right to interpret my silence as optimum signum ; I think to be true-ment out of danger.
My wife joins me to greet you warmly and wish you a great holiday.
Always [The. Binswanger]
