LEOPOLD GODOWSKY - PIANIST

Autographed letter on a deckled postcard by the legendary pianist to his friend, composer and concert promoter Dr. Emil Hilb, Joachimstal, August 5, 1935. 

We offer with an unusual postcard photograph of the pianist, perfect for display.

Next Saturday the 10th, I will be out of this prison; my Joachimstal cure will be at an end.  I will be a free man.  You have no idea how relieved I will feel.  I expect to return to NY within 4 weeks and have to see you then.  Your last letter to me I appreciated very much.   With affectionate greetings, Godowsky. 

Joachimstal is a town in the now Czech Republic known for it's uranium mines and health resorts which provided their clientele with thermo radioactive baths in their natural springs.Perhaps, not a very good idea, given what we know today! The verso of the card is of the Teresa-Kolonade Hotel, we assume the place where Godowsky stayed.
