Abstract

[BLEEDTHROUGH---difficult to read] [Central Hotel, Berlin] "After looking carefully over Vienna I found that no dolls of any consequence whatever are made there. A few small shops [illeg] the cheap rubber dolls and also some all china dolls are made, but only for the infants. All the better class of dolls are brought from Paris in spite of the excessive duty. The reason for this is that so few dolls are sold that it would not pay to make them here. I could not find a single shop in Vienna where nice dolls were displayed in the windows or otherwise, nor was it easy to get any sort of information concerning them, as no one seemed to know anyting about the trade, altho I [sent?] letters to leading business houses there, [illeg]. ### My opinion is that that trade can be handled thro Paris [can't read remaining half of letter]
