[Letters related to the case of George Von Zedlitz]

[Letter to Clement Watson from Professor Von Zedlitz. 20th November]

Lower Hutt

Dear Mr. Watson

I forgot
to mention to you yesterday
the name of
Dr. Lodewyckx
who it available might
suit very well for a
temporary post at Victoria
College in my place. When
I last heard of him
somewhere about a year
ago, he was teaching at
the Church of England
Grammar School, Melbourne.

Belgian, well qualified
to teach German up to
our highest standards, and
has taught in one of the
South African University
Colleges, Stellenbosch [unclear: &]
[unclear: family]. I know nothing of
his references, but he
is a pleasant fellow to
meet, & if you have any
hesitations or difficulties
in connection with [unclear: Mrs]
McPhail, it might perhaps
be [unclear: convienent] to you to
know about him now in
case you want a second
[unclear: Sking] to your [gap — reason: illegible]. Perhaps
Picken might sound him
to you as to terms etc. He
could undertake all my
work leaving Mrs M. as
[unclear: hither] to.

Faithfully yours.

G.W. von Zedlitz
