[Letter: ]

Most beloved Master, 1

I received a letter today from Prof. V., which might have been addressed to Reitler and his consorts.

I will bring it tomorrow – and also the [small music example 2 ], which I hope are more successful [than the last].


Most cordially your

Footnotes

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

2 An arrangement of whole notes and tied half-notes, suggestive of fourth-species counterpoint in four voices (species line in the tenor). Schenker's lessonbook for Weisse on June 10 reads: "Exercises; Fantasy [in G minor, Op. 77] by Beethoven several passages; on Fantasy in general."
