Praust Mystery Resolved

For some time, we’ve had reservations about registered covers from Praust , addressed to• Dr. Waither Model in Potsdam. At a BALPEX GPS convention, Bud Hennig and the editor were looking thru a dealer’s stock of covers, assuming the worst in the case of Praust mail to Dr. Model. How ver, a folded reply card with a handwritten note dated 7 June 1921 from a Margaret Klindt has cleared up the mystery.  The card and message is printed on the next page. Apparently, Ms. Klindt was keeping the Dr. supplied with the latest Danzig issues, on cover yet!
