State Department January 15, 1943

Frank to the Secretary of State reports from a 
reliable source that:

Hitler has been quarreling with Zeitzler because 
he is depressed by the campaign in the East. "He is 
seeking distractions such as long daily sittings 
before the latest front and sport films: in his 
seclusion he drinks a fair amount of intoxicants. 
Hitler seeks and insists upon confirmation from 
associates as he appears to be losing confidence 
in his own intuition. Herr Hath of Vienna and Frau 
Benthiine of Munich, both clairvoyants, visit Hitler 
at Berchtesgaden at fairly regular intervals. He gets 
'inspiration' from these two fortunetellers and many 
of his decisions result from this (unconfirmed). 
Hitler links the survival of the German people with 
his home. He leaves headquarters every Thursday and 
returns Monday.
