Bayerische Staatsbibliothek


Born in Innsbruck, Alfred Freiherr Mensi von Klarbach (1854-1933) was initially a volunteer at the newspaper "Der Gemäßigte" founded by Martin Schleich (1827-1881). After that he became editor of the "Süddeutsche Presse" (South German Press), from 1882 of the "Allgemeine Zeitung", where he was responsible for the theatre and music section. He took over the newspaper as responsible editor from 1887. The painter and poet Helene Raff (1865-1942), who was born in Wiesbaden, had been involved in the bourgeois women's movement since the 1890s; she joined the Verein für Fraueninteressen founded in Munich (1894) in 1899 and the female writers' association in 1913. From the very beginning, her works have focused on the transformation of the role of women in the present. The three personal letters Mensi von Klarbach wrote to Helene Raff contain two declarations of congratulations on her 60th and 65th birthday (leaf 1 and 3) as well as an advertisement of his review of Raff's Tyrolean story "Das Mädchen von Spinges" in the "Münchener Zeitung" (leaf 2).
