Footnotes

1 Receipt of this postcard is not recorded in Schenker's diary.

2 The letter of agreement for the cessation of Der Tonwille, dated December 10, 1925, following the meeting on December 9, does not appear to survive. It provided for four annual installments of 1,250 shillings for Der Tonwille, plus ongoing annual installments of 1,250 shillings for the collected edition of the Beethoven sonatas. By December 1929, the first of these had lapsed. For a fuller account of the circumstances surrounding this negotiated settlement, see Ian Bent and William Drabkin, "General Preface," Der Tonwille: Pamphlets/Quarterly Publication ..., vol. II (New York: Oxford University Press, 2005), pp. v‒xii.
