Liebe Mutter! Bin also wieder auf Fahrt gestern bis Worms, heute bis Frankfurt. Wurde hier sehr gut empfangen, morgen schwimme(?) ich am Rhein von Bingen bis Koblenz; heute besichtige ich den Zepp in der Halle, wunderbar! morgen schlafe ich in Köln; in 3 Tagen gehts nach Helgoland und in 6 Tagen nach Berlin. Von dort fahre ich vielleicht noch wohin, doch davon später. Heil und Sieg Alfy.
Dear mother! I was en route to [Worms](https://goo.gl/maps/xjksaqbLdrL2) yesterday, today to [Frankfurt](https://goo.gl/maps/P3efBEgke6y). I was received very well, tomorrow I’ll swim(?) in the [Rhein](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhine) from [Bingen](https://goo.gl/maps/ri5B79iwFuL2) to [Koblenz](https://goo.gl/maps/ZyAypoYbZYP2); today I’m going to visit the Zeppelin in its hall, wonderful! tomorrow I’m going to sleep in [Cologne](https://goo.gl/maps/buCGeEvULXu); in 3 days I will be on my way to [Helgoland](https://goo.gl/maps/Nat5KDkFvtF2) and in 6 days to [Berlin](https://goo.gl/maps/ByDu7HWhCVq). From there I’ll perhaps continue, but more on that later. Heil and Sieg Alfy.
zebovkills: Dear Mother!
So I’m on the road again. Yesterday till Worms, today till Frankfurt. Was received very well here. Tomorrow I’ll swim (?) near the Rhine from Bingen to Koblenz; today I saw the Zepp in the hangar, wonderful! Tomorrow I’ll sleep in Cologne, in 3 days on to Helgoland, in 6 days to Berlin. From there I might go to Vienna (?), but more about that later.
Heil und Sieg Alfy
jacdelad: It’s a Karl writing his mother. Unfortunately I cannot all of it but he received his route over Worms and Köln to finally Helgoland. Maybe someone can read it better.
DoubleMal: Mom appears to live in Czechoslovia in July 1937 and Alfy throws in the “Heil und Sieg” bit. Wonder how they felt later in ’39 after the annexation; did Alfy grow up in Czecho, was he part of an ethnically German family living in Czecho (ie. one of Adolf’s excuses for the annexation in the first place), etc…
