Liebster Meister! 1

Haben Sie meinen Brief nicht bekommen? Ich sandte ihn Ihnen gleich nach Empfang der veränderten Adresse. Hoffe Sie wohlauf und zufrieden. Heuer habe ich mich der Gesundheit mehr als der Composition widmen müssen, bringe nur weniges – unvollendetes! Bitte[,] mich zu verständigen, ob Sie bis jetzt ohne Nachricht waren, da ich in diesem Falle Ihnen nochmals alles ausführlich schreiben würde.

In innigster Liebe und Verehrung
Ihr sich auf Sie rasend freuender

Dearest Master, 1

Did you not receive my letter? I sent it to you as soon as I had received your new address. I hope that you are well and content. This summer I have had to devote myself more to my health than to my compositions; I shall bring only a few ‒ incomplete ‒ things. I ask for your understanding about not being informed until now, as I intend in this case to write again to you fully about everything.

In deepest love and veneration,
looking forward with excitement to seeing you, Your
