Translation of the Letter:

Magdeburg, 21 April 1919

My dear Mr. Paul Baer!

Our dear Lord has taken the child of the village pastor to himself; I deeply mourn with you. But it was His will and must be obeyed. With all my heart, I hope that our King, God, will mercifully take care of you and your dear ones.

With kind regards,
D. von Roeder
General Major
