|On foot beyond the city gates to the grave of poet Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock
(1724-1803) at Christians-Kirche. Mysteriously, Beckett makes a note of the inscription on the gravestone of Victor Ludwig Klopstock, the poet's brother, a
merchant and publisher of two newspapers from Hamburg.
In the evening, move by taxi to Pension Hoppe, Schlüterstasse 44*.
Took Ringstrassenbahn to Millerntor & walked from there down to Fischmarkt (just on border between Altona & St. Pauli), then along Palmaille... to Klopstocks above. Then lunch in Altona Hbf.
Conversation after meal with one Martion, der Kaufmann lernt u. so ausseht... Explains all about »Leica camera Vergrösserungsapparat« & Gott weiss was sonst... Opines would be far better for me if I got living with a Lehrer oder Pfarrer auf dem Lande...
