Lieber verehrter Meister, 1

zwar bin ich in der IX., 2 doch auf der Galerie und da keine lange Pause sein dürfte, wird sicherlich nicht Zeit genug sein[,] um Sie unten zu besuchen. Ich werde also bereits ¼1 Uhr beim Musikvereinstor Lothringerstrasse stehen und auf Sie warten!


Mit besten Grüssen von uns dreien an Sie beide

Dear revered Master, 1

Yes, I shall be in the IXth, 2 but in the gallery; and since there will probably not be a long intermission, there will certainly not be enough time to go downstairs to see you. Thus I shall be standing at the gate of the Musikverein at Lothringerstrasse promptly at a quarter past twelve, waiting for you!


With best greetings from the three of us to the two of you,
Yours,
