Sehr geehrter Herr! 1

Ich hätte gestern gar zu gerne Ihr Kammermusik-Konzert 2 angehört auf das ich mich schon recht gefreut habe, aber ein Unwohlsein zwang mich den ganzen Tag zuhause zu bleiben. So musste ich zu meinem Bedauern verzichten.


Stets Ihr hochachtungsvoll

Dear Sir, 1

Yesterday I had every intention of hearing your chamber music concert, 2 to which I had really been looking forward. However, an indisposition obliged me to stay home the entire day, so I was compelled to forgo it.


As ever with kind regards,
