Scofield Thayer an Hermann Bahr, 7. 11. 1922
I came back after all to Vienna to finish a little work2 that I am doing about some contemporary German writers. Did you then find that you really could write something about Civilisation in the United States from the point of view of an old Whitmanite? If so, may I hope to receive the article from you3 here or have you, perhaps already, sent it to The Dial in New York ?
Dr. Schnitzler has told me of something you once wrote about Vienna and about the influence of Celtic blood upon its character. But I do not know where to find this article or book 5 of yourself. Perhaps you could let me know under what title I should look for it at my book-sellers? And if you know of any other book or article upon Vienna whether from your own pen or not. I should be grateful to you if you could write me of it.
May I then hope for a word from you as to whether we are to expect something for The Dial?
