As good luck would have it, the Beethoven Festival 2 brought the facsimile of the "Appassionata" Sonata (from Paris) 3 to Vienna. I am now in a position to comply with our most recent letters of agreement. I am sending [you] the correction of the Sonata in the light of the autograph manuscript, and request a proof as soon as possible from the printer, since the facsimile is being widely distributed.


With kind regards,
Yours truly,
