15, rain

– during a break in the rain, towards Wirl, from 10 to 11:15. — For the painter Schwarz, cigars as a present in return. — In the afternoon, at work. — From Miss Elias (letter): greetings from Vent. — From Deutsch (letter= OC 54/311): draft contract; he recommends that I sign it. Formula for sharing [the proceeds of sales]: 10:3 (?!); a phrase in the letter, "Hoboken, who is very happy in his dream-world," {3495} perplexes me! 1

Footnotes

1 The diary misquotes Deutsch's letter ("an der Irre" instead of "in der Irre"), a mistake that Schenker unconsciously repeats in his reply. See the diary entry for July 20.
