Dear Mr. Violin: 1

Upon your request I wrote a letter to Mr. Monteux 2 asking him to give you an appointment. Simultaneously I wrote you, informing you of the fulfillment of your request.

I wonder whether you received this letter and whether you have seen Mr. Monteux (whom I also asked about his performance of my Chamber Symphony.)

How are you? I hope you are all right. I have been frequently sick, but I am better now.


Cordial greetings,
yours
[unsigned]
