Footnotes

1 Writing of one letter, not known to survive, to Louis Koch is recorded in Schenker's diary at OJ 1/19, p. 34, November 14, 1915: "Brief u. Exemplar an Louis Koch in Frankfurt. Im Brief ohne Scheu den häßlichen Zug des Verlegers gebrandmarkt u. um Dispens für meine eigene Person gebeten. Die Gelegenheit, daß der Adressat in Frankfurt lebt, nahm ich wahr, um auf den Fall Bekker–Museumsgesellschaft zurückzukommen u. der letzteren in dieser Form Succurs zu leisten. Endlich bitte ich um Bekanntgabe eventueller Autographe von Chopin."
("Letter and copy [of the [ Erläuterungsausgabe of Op. 111] to Louis Koch in Frankfurt. In the letter I unreservedly denounced the publisher's hateful disposition and begged dispensation for myself. That the addressee lives in Frankfurt I took as opportunity to revert to the matter of the Bekker Museum Society and to lend aid to the latter in this form. Lastly I asked to know of any Chopin autographs he might have.") Presumably the letter and Op. 111 copy were sent separately, thereby requiring these two consecutively numbered postal receipts (which form one document).
The year 1919 given in the Finding List of the Oster Collection, p. 299, is incorrect. Koch's reply is at OC B/270, November 29, 1915.
