Enclosed is the death certificate you requested. In
addition, I have enclosed some patient records for you to give to
Bernie. Just give him the whole envelope. I have also sent letters
to both Mr. Witzling (lawyer), and David Mason for them to start work
on the estate and the tax returns. Witzling will proceed to set up
the estate account so that we can start paying the bills. Also, you
will be able to draw from it to cover immediate expenses.
I will be back around the middle of March, and will stay a
while, possibly a week or two.
How have you been. I'm only now realizing how much I miss
Dad. Somehow, although we didn't see too much of each other, we were
close in our thoughts. I know that Dad lived every day with me, and
I now sense the emptyness of his not being "there" anymore. Well.
I'm keeping busy, but am really at a loss without my chief
consultant. I am really making a serious effort to revise the
objectives of the company so that I can soon seriously start on the
PhD thesis. My talk with Robert May was fruitful, in the sense that
I made another potentially worthwhile contact. I will meet with this
new fellow next week and will let you know something more later.
I have not yet written to any of my friends in Europe, but
will do so shortly. I must send Nicole, Antonia, and Katerina
letters. You can handle the others.
By the way, you mentioned plans to go to Israel sometime this
spring. I also remember that you had planned to come out here.
Somehow, I am not sure just which plan was the more final one. I
assume that if you are going to go to Israel you have already made a
charter flight reservation, or else planned a group trip, as you have
done so many times before.
I think you should get yourself an AAA membership. This will
be good should you have some car trouble, such as a flat tire, or
even can't start the car in the morning. The peace of mind is worth
the $25 or whatever it costs. In addition, they are a travel agency
which plans trips by air, boat, train, etc., besides giving out maps.
You can order maps, travel books, etc. all by phone.
I have not heard from Dick, but assume that he is allright.
We have been having a large amount of rain recently, although
yesterday and today were beautiful. Anita must have brought the
rain, for it started when she arrived and lasted until she left. I
guess that she will not have a very good impression of San Francisco
because of that. As it turned out, it was good that I put her in
contact with Liz, for most of her other contacts here turned out to
be sick or out of town, etc. She certainly can talk!! By the way,
she will be back in New York around the 6th of March and not on the
23rd of February as I had thought.
Please keep all the letters and bills we recieve in the next
month, as it will be necessary to include them in the estate. I am
having David Mason start on the tax returns for last year. He may
call you for information, although I have provided him with a lot
I suggest that you call the office number occaisionally and
ask the answering service for all the messages. You should tell them
to keep sending patients to Bernie Handler. Also, have them call you
should they have any personal problems. As for questions about
bills, Anita will handle them when she gets back, or else you can
take a message and write it to me. I have Dad's appointment book
with me so I can check up on dates, details, etc. The old bills are
in the basement for reference. Keep records of your transactions so
I can go over them when I come out again.
How goes the interviewing for a suitable couple to room in
the house. Remember, you can afford to be a bit particular, for the
house is a fantastic place for anyone to live in, and I am sure many
would like the opportunity of filling the available space. I think a
reasonable charge is in order, at least to cover the utilities and
heat. From Dads records it costs about $75/month for heat, gas,
electricity. The phone is extra. You can save lots by turning the
heat down to 55 or even 50 at night. It will only take a short while
to go back up in the morning.
Is the garage door fixed yet. I think it needs a new motor
assembly. Call Sears and be persistent. Also, be careful when you
open the door by hand, you can get your fingers caught in the cracks-
I know because I did once.
How's hebrew school- are you back to your usual self yet.
And, oh yes, I remember that Teddy was going to come by for a visit.
Has he been by yet. Say hello to him from me if he is there when you
get this letter.
I have enclosed a rough summary of anticipated expenses you
will have with respect to the house, car, travel, etc. This is for
your information and is only an estimate. Time will tell what the
real expenses will be.
I guess that this is it for now. Remember, when you call, it
is best to call me Collect and I will refuse the charges. Or else
use the method Dad used and ask for Dr. Richard Scheinman and I will
return the call. It is also best to call me between 10AM and 11AM,
or after 8 pm. The morning calls are really cheap ( only 25 cents
per minute, while the evening calls are about 90 cents for 3
