(Munich, February 3,1923. )
      
Hitler going from meeting to meeting, is received 
with enthusiasm. He is an extraordinary person. An 
artist turned popular prophet and savior, is the way 
members of the audience described him to us as we 
waited for him to appear. A young man stepped on 
the platform and acknowledged the long applause. 
His speech was intense and brief; he constantly 
clenched and unclenched his hands. When I was alone 
with him for a few moments, he seemed hardly 
normal; queer eyes, nervous hands, and a strange 
movement of the head. He would not give an interview - 
said he had no use for Americans. Later I learned 
something of this story. He is not an artist but a 
locksmith, not a Bavarian, but an Austrian. During 
the war he was wounded, or through fright and shock 
became blind. In the hospital he was subject to 
ecstatic visions of Victorious Germany, and in 
one of these seizures his eyesight was restored.
