Sehr geehrter Herr Direktor! 1

H. Dr. Ludwig Karpath vom N. W. Tagbl. (IV. Frankenberggasse) ersucht durch mich um die II Aufl. der Ornamentik . Zwar hatte er erst vor kurzem, vor wenigen Monaten, die Orn. im N. W. Tagbl. besprochen, hat aber neuerdings dringenden Anlaß, ich glaube die Besprechung der Briefe Bülow's in die II Aufl. einzusehen, u. diese bei dieser Gelegenheit wieder zu citieren. Wollen Sie die Freundlichkeit haben, ihm, der eben am Feuilleuton arbeitet, so rasch als möglich, das Büchlein zukommen zu lassen? Mit bestem Dank in seinem, wie eigenen Namen.


Mit ausgez. Hochachtung
Ihr ergb

Dear Director, 1

Dr. Ludwig Karpath of the Neues Wiener Tagblatt (IV, Frankenberggasse) is requesting, through me, the second edition of Ornamentation . He has in fact reviewed Ornamentation in the Neues Wiener Tagblatt not long ‒ a few months ‒ ago, but now has urgent need ‒ I believe the review of the letters of Bülow ‒ to inspect the second edition and to cite the latter again on this occasion. Please would you very kindly have the booklet sent to him as quickly as possible ‒ he is just now working on the Feuilleton? With many thanks on his part as well as mine.


With kind regards
Your devoted
