— To the Academy (letter= OJ 5/4, [2]): can the stipend be paid on January 6, 1927? — To the book-keeping department of UE (postcard): I ask that the payment due be sent to my brother. — From Miss Balaban and Frieda (letter): thanks for the theater tickets. — From Cube (letter= OJ 9/34, [4]): he is expecting an appointment. — From Ludwig Gelber: invitation to the unveiling of the monument to Popper. 1 — van H. invites us for Wednesday the 22nd and recounts that he has heard, at Gutmann's, that all my works are selling well. — To Roth (letter): the content [of his proposed book] is dominated too much by Fux, which was surely not his intention; I criticize his use of the word "linear," as it lacks an opposing term; also, all voice-leading events should be expressed with positive word constructions: {3013} a negative one would lead to the suspicion that the voice-leading came to a halt, etc.
