An Austrian writer receives a letter from an unknown woman on the day of his anniversary. This woman tells him that she knew him for 20 years now. As she was his neighbour as an 8 years old child, she fell madly in love with him, observing him secretly. Later, at age 18, she was one of his numerous mistresses for two or three nights and became pregnant. She didn't want to disturb him so she chose to be a courtesan in order to raise their son. She met him for another night, years later, but the writer didn't recognize her, once again. Now that their son has just died from the influenza, she has decided to write to him this letter he will receive only after her death.
