Footnotes

1 Presumably Baron Salomon Albert von Rothschild (1844–1911), Alphons's father.

2 The adressee is unidentified here: it is possibly the Rothschild Artists' Foundation, in which case possibly paving the way for Schenker's application of 1899 (see OJ 12/26 [1], November 20, 1899).

3 The use of the specialist designation "Theoretiker" perhaps dates this card at earliest after 1902.
