Footnotes

1 Writing of this letter is not recorded in Schenker's diary.

2 The formality of the letter leads one to conjecture that Graf approached Schenker for the first time, and that this was on Bahr's initiative.

3 In the Allgemeines Adress-Buch nebst Geschäfts-Handbuch für die k.k. Haupt- und Residenzstadt Wien und dessen Umgebung 33–52 (1891–1910), Max Graf is listed at the address Lammgasse 3 in only 1896 and 1897. Graf graduated in 1896. Possibly he wrote the letter before his graduation, since at his first communication with Schenker he would probably not have suppressed his academic title.
