— From Floriz (letter): he will be in Vienna at Easter!! Complains about Weisse. — Work on the corrections to the Mozart "article"; I get into Jahn’s biography 1 and, on account of a footnote there, feel compelled to look at a few more things. — After lunch, we withdraw $4,100, and 308 shillings interest. — To Rothberger (postcard): we are at his disposal. — From the publishers: accounts for Yearbooks I , II , and III , up to January 1, 1931; I and II are going surprisingly well, I shall probably not find out about III until April 1, 1931. — Diary dictation.

Footnotes

1 Otto Jahn, W. A. Mozart, 3rd edition, edited and expanded by Hermann Deiters (Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel, 1889). This book is known to have been in Schenker's personal library at the time of his death: see Musik und Theater enthaltend die Bibliothek des Herrn Dr. Heinrich Schenker, Wien (Vienna: Antiquariat Heinrich Hinterberger, n.d.), Item 195. The footnote in question reads as follows: "A letter from Mozart to a certain Baron von P. upon this subject, first printed by Rochlitz (A. M. Z., XVII., p. 561), and often subsequently, is incontestably a fabrication as it stands. As it is impossible to determine how far it is founded upon truth, it must remain entirely out of the question." (Translation by Pauline Townsend, from the first English edition (London: Novello & Ewer, 1882), vol. 2, p. 415, note 6.)
