Oslo, 16 July 1925
Mr Roald Amundsen,
Uranienborg, postal adr. Baalerud,
The City of Kiel’s Office of Trade and Industry has telegraphed to inform us that it has addressed an inquiry to you and to Dr. Eckener with the aim that the conference reportedly planned between you and Dr. Eckener should take place in Kiel. The aforementioned authorities in Kiel are asking that we try at the same time to help ensure that this will happen.
With regard to the above, we respectfully inform you that, provided your journey to Germany actually happens, it will be a great honour for us to obtain a quiet and suitable cabin for your pleasure on one of our passenger ships to Kiel. Departure takes place from Toldbodbryggen, Hersted, every Saturday at 11, and arrival in Kiel Sunday afternoon at around 3-5.-
It goes without saying that this also applies even if the aforementioned conference does not take place in Kiel.
