Dear, revered Master, 1

Since Dr. Spiegler 2 was expected at my place in the evening, I hesitated with the reply regarding Bruno Walter. Here it is: Bruno W. is at present in Budapest and is returning on Wednesday or Thursday. He will be staying at the Hotel Imperial.


To the two of you, all good wishes for 1928 from the two of us!
Your faithful
