I want to compliment TIME on its splendid portrayal of the German situation in March and April.

I happened to be in Germany during this period and was eager to see how periodicals back home pictured it. TIME was in my humble estimation the only magazine which described matters accurately as they took place.

You might be interested to know also that I saw TIME on the Crown-Prince’s writing table when I interviewed him at 36 Unter den Linden in mid-March: and also on the magazine table of President Hindenburg, although the latter’s secretary informed me your magazine was “very inaccurate.”

I am now anxiously watching TIME to see what it is going to say about the Austrian situation. . . .
