Professor R. Amundsen.
Dear Mr Amundsen.
You may remember, in 1913, when I had the pleasure of welcoming you on the occasion of your lecture in Munich. There is a great span of time between then and now and a lot has changed, but your daring, your energy and your inquiring mind have remained the same.
If I allow myself today to express my sincere congratulations on your return, I consider myself fortunate to be able to tell you, as the representative of the Norwegian Colony in Munich, how proud we are of you.
Your picture, which you gave to me a long time ago, is garlanded with flowers in my room.
With best wishes and highest regards
Norwegian Consul for Bavaria
