Sehr geehrter Herr,

der Artikel über Leoncavallo 1 wird mir vor den Medici 2 sehr willkommen sein; vielleicht können wir ihn Gerede in der betr. Woche bringen. Auch Bruckner 3 ist willkommen. Wann wird seine Symphonie gespielt?


Mit bestem Dank, in herzlicher Hochachtung
Ihr erg.

Dear Sir,

I would very much welcome the article on Leoncavallo 1 before I Medici; 2 perhaps we can get him talked about during the appropriate week. The Bruckner 3 is welcome too. When will his symphony be played?


With sincere thanks, in cordial esteem,
Yours truly,
