Sehr geehrter Herr Professor!

Die Proben für die Notenbeispiele werden etwas länger dauern, weil die Herstellung des Stichs nicht so rasch vor sich geht.

Die in Ihrer Karte vom 4.d.M. 2 gewünschten Exemplare werden wir nach Beendigung des Streiks an die angegebene Addresse expedieren und empfehlen uns

Dear Professor,

As 1 requested, we send herewith trial proofs for the larger and smaller type-sizes of the Little Library together with your manuscript, and ask you to let us know whether these proofs are satisfactory to you. The trials for the music examples will take somewhat longer because production of the engraving is not so fast.

The copies requested in your postcard of the 4th inst. 2 will be expedited to the address that you give after the strike has ended. We remain,


with kind regards,
