Typed letter signed, one page, 8 x 11 inch, personal stationery, Berlin, 3.01.1935, in German, to colleague Meng - concerning medical writings, signed in dark ink "Erwin Liek", with intersecting letter folds, and tears along the right edge - in nearly fine condition.

In parts:
"... Ich habe alles sofort mit grösstem Genuss gelesen. Ihre Anschauungen über die Behandlung der Magersucht waren mir schon bekannt durch einige Arbeiten, die Grote mir schickte. Den Ausdruck `Organpsychose` finde ich sehr glücklich geprägt. Er macht ein Ende mit vielen Unklarheiten, die bisher das Schrifttum durchziehen... Die Festschrift für Schlegel kannte ich noch nicht und habe sie mit Vergnügen gelesen und meiner Bibliothek einverleibt..."

"... I immediately read everything with the greatest enjoyment. Your views on the treatment of anorexia were already familiar to me from some of the work Grote sent me. The term 'organ psychosis' is very felicitous. He puts an end to many ambiguities that have so far permeated the literature... I did not know the Festschrift for Schlegel yet and I enjoyed reading it and incorporating it into my library..."
