Rilke writes a heartfelt letter to Perlzweig expressing his thanks for the substantial financial aid she orchestrated from America. He apologizes for his delay in writing, explaining he wanted to include his large edition of the Studenbuch which was in preparation. Perhaps more importantly, he needed to find the right words. He conveys that his gratitude is filled with integrity, warmth and joy. He notes the funds came at just the right time: some time after his apartment was confiscated during World War I. He eloquently articulates the contributions from his unknown American friends are largely responsible for what protection and peace he could find in the years of transition after the war.
