March 26, 1930, somewhat brighter, 9°.

— Work on Brahms's Op. 117, examination of pp. 18–28, which were already corrected once; new [corrections] beginning with p. 29. 1 — From 4 to 4:45, obtaining tickets for Janings is unsuccessful; then shopping for afternoon snack. — 5:30 to 8:30, Lene Weil; she behaves modestly, seems sufficiently intelligent to enjoy life, even when rather strict demands are placed on it; whether she will maintain and justify these demands, only time will tell.

Footnotes

1 A 28-page typescript study of Op. 117, No. 1 by Hoboken survives as OC 14/2, and an earlier draft as OC 14/3. The diaries for Sept and Dec 1929 also indicate that Hoboken worked also on Nos 2 and 3, and that Schenker did preparatory work of his own.
