Description
2 pages. Letter is signed simply "Gina". Translated Summary: Letter appears to deal with personal issues, especially the loss of motivation to keep going in the work, now the glory days are over. Lack of desire to give talks. Difficulties regarding her book that was to be compiled with apparent constraints on which articles would be included, or which old articles could be located and used for that purpose. Expresses disagreement with Youkelson on the appropriateness of the tone, on whether her material is dated, etc. Ends with loving message to Nina. Back of envelope has a note: "Harriet Lifshitz, 2816 Bx, c/o Gordon." Medem's book, "A Lebensveg," with a foreword by Youkelson, was not published until 1950. See related correspondence.
