Hans and Sophie move to Franz Josef Strasse 13

I have rented a room from Mrs. Schmidt, for which I pay monthly rental of 120 Marks [$960.00]. For a [hot] bath, I must pay 1 Mark [$8.00]. I must reimburse [her] for all telephone charges. I eat almost all my meals in public restaurants, and am considered a “regular” in some of these. I generally pay around 1.50 Marks [$12.00] per meal. We usually cook our own breakfasts and suppers. I need around 2.50 Marks [$20.00] per day for living expenses.
