Partial Translation:
...
I heard with great joy about the honorific decoration that you received for courage in front of the enemy. I especially lamented your absence from Berlin when the birth of your heir was announced in the office. In case my loyal congratulations did not reach you, I would not like to miss this opportunity to repeat them.
I am temporarily pulled back from military service, but I can expect by draft call any day now.
Your private books, that I already transferred to Herr Kommerzienrat, I requested back immediately and continued to manage them. The daily correspondence is promptly taken care of in the usual way.
The invitations to the "thirtieth" have taken place regularly until now, except in the month of August, on the wish of the individual men.
Since you did not mention anything in your correspondence, I take it that you do not know that Fräulein Kunisch, after she read war mourning[?] on the 5th August, is still active with us and takes care of her writing things in the usual way.
