Dear Sir, 1

Just to let you know that I have arrived back in Vienna. Will it still be possible for Counterpoint to be issued in the course of September? 2

In the meantime, I will attempt in a longer letter to set out my plans and send you the letter as soon as possible. 3


With kind regards, Your devoted
