Why Hitler can't sleep.

The Literary Digests 9/18/37                                               
p. 24

Hitler sleeps badly- especially in Berlin. His lungs 
need the healthy air of the Bavarian mountains; that, 
at least is the opinion of his personal physician, Dr. 
Sauerbruch ....  the one man in Germany who enjoys 
freedom of speech. He always prescribes a rest in 
the mountains; so the Fuehrer always has an excuse 
to secape [sic] from Berlin to his "eagle nest" the 
only spot where he feels reasonably safe .....

At night, ghosts walk. Ernst Roehm was Hitler's most 
intimate friend ...... a concealed group of men are 
determined to avenge murder with murder.

          These men call themselves Roehm's Revengers. 
They form the most dangerous secret society of our time .......

At all events Hitler sees ghosts. Sometimes he also 
sees the letters R.R. signature of Roehm's Revengers. 
As if intent on driving him mad these two letters dog 
his footsteps. Mail addressed to him always includes 
correspondence stamped R.R. The initials were once 
found on a treaty that had been laid before him before 
him to be signed. Once they were even stenciled in 
scarlet ink on the trench coat in which he appears in public.

          The only road that leads to Villa Wachenhorst - 
Hitler's house - is guarded on both sides by especially 
selected troops. No living being can pass through 
unnoticed. They inhabit the parks and the corridors, 
the halls and the rooms of Villa Wachenhorst. They 
superintend the preparation of the Fuehrer's breakfast; 
they stand near by when any visitor is received; they 
search every nook and corner before Hitler retires. And 
yet, several weeks ago, the two letters R.R. glared 
forth in dazzling red on the wall of his bedroom.  

(Sounds phony - how does Kraus know?)
