Footnotes

1 Receipt of this postcard is not recorded in Schenker's diary. "R/a" in the postmark indicates that the item was sent by registered mail.

2 The top right corner of the postcard is missing. In his postcard of acceptance, Schenker had said: "Nach der Jause nach ½5, erscheinen wir pünktlich." ("We will arrive punctually after teatime, at 4.30.") (JOB 94-3, [3], May 29, 1922).

3 Schenker describes the visit in his diary at OJ 3/3, p. 2434, May 31, 1922: "Bei Hammer zur Jause, von 5–8h; zeigt Bilder, seine Schrift; spricht über die Urlinie – verurteilt meine Polemik, billigt sie aber zugleich." ("At Hammer's for teatime, from 5:00–8:00; he shows [us] pictures, his monograph; talks about the Urlinie – condemns my polemics but simultaneously approves of it.").
