Sehr geehrter Herr Waldeck! 1

Wegen dringender Arbeit kann ich heute – ohnehin ein wenig verspätet, was ich zu entschuldigen bitte – vorerst nun die Bestätigung des Empfanges Ihres Schreibens vom 22.9 2 Ihnen senden, wohl aber komme ich auf Ihren frdl. Vorschlag ganz bestimmt in der nächsten Woche zurück.


Hochachtungsvoll,

Dear Mr. Waldeck, 1

On account of urgent matters, I am able only today to send you confirmation of receipt of your letter of September 22 2 ‒ somewhat late at that, for which I beg your indulgence. I shall certainly consider your kind offer in the next week.


With kind regards,
[signed:] Dr. Heinrich Schenker
