Sehr geehrter Herr Doktor!

Einige freie Minuten werden dazu benützt, Ihnen zu schreiben, dass der Hauptstreich des Berliner Esels, 1 von dem wir heute Vormittag gesprochen haben, rein in die Luft geführt worden ist. Bitte, lesen Sie Herrn Frankensteins Musikalisches Wochenblatt No 13. Dort ist auch das Faksimile des Beethovenbriefes an Neffzern 2 zu finden. Dazu sende ich Ihnen nächstens noch etwas. Der Kerl hat das Autograph nicht einmal gesehen!


Herzlich grüssend

Dear Dr. [Schenker],

Some free time is here used to write and inform you that the main thrust of the tweak we discussed this morning by the Berlin jackass 1 has dissipated into thin air. Please read Mr. Frankenstein's Musikalisches Wochenblatt No. 13 as well. The facsimile of the Beethoven letter to Neffzer 2 can also be found there. Before long I shall send you more about this. The gentleman has not even seen the autograph!


With cordial greetings,

Footnotes

1 Esel (jackass): unknown.

2 Baron Franz Alexander von Neffzer (1779-1864). The letter in question is most plausibly dated to the summer of 1813 by the editors of the Beethoven Briefe Gesamtausgabe (Munich: Henle, 1996), vol. II, No. 660. (It concerns something that Neffzer intends sending to Beethoven, and Beethoven explains that he may not be in Vienna and that his servant is not always home.)
