Footnotes

1 Receipt of this letter is not recorded in Schenker's diary. Note the use of "J" in place of capital "I", even though the latter was available on the keyboard for use as a Roman numeral.

2 Evidence that Schenker called on Bopp comes from his diary at OJ 1/10, pp. 131r‒131a, dated merely "June 1911": "Letter to me from Bopp in April to present myself at his office. There I am informed by him that the Bach and Beethoven edition planned jointly by me, Universal Edition and the Academy is the best way to its realization; finally: "The President [Karl von Wiener] would like to speak with me." The entry goes on at length to recount the conflict that then arose between Schenker, Bopp, and Wiener.
