Sehr verehrter und lieber Herr Dr. ! 1

Herr Deutsch hat mir die Nummer der Allgemeinen Musikalischen Zeitung angegeben, in welcher das Zitat von Mozart vorkommen soll. Ich werde die Zeitschrift am Montag wieder in meiner Bibliothek zurückbekommen und werde Ihnen dann am Dienstag mitteilen, ob es sich gefunden hat. 2 Vielleicht kann ich Ihnen dadurch die Durchsicht der beiden Schiedermair-Bände ersparen.


Mit besten [recte bestem] Gruss,
Ihr ergebener

Dear, much revered Dr. Schenker, 1

Mr. Deutsch has told me which issue of the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung is supposed to contain the quotation from Mozart. I will retrieve the journal on Monday in my library and will then tell you on Tuesday whether I was able to find it. 2 Perhaps I can thereby spare you the task of checking the two Schiedermair volumes.


With best greetings,
Your devoted
