Letters from Emma Klingenfeld to Helene Raff

Emma Klingenfeld's (1848-1935) letters contain, among other things, congratulations on the birthday of Helene Raff's (1865-1942) mother, the actress Doris Raff (1827-1912); a token of thanks for her collection of novellas Sünder und Entsühnte (Sinners and the Atoned – 1907); rhymed birthday greetings to Raff, combined with the desire for peace in 1917 or for an improvement in the situation at the next election in 1924. The letter dated May 1933 laments that Helene Raff had lost her position as editor of the "Die Frau" (The Woman) magazine.
