Mein lieber Dr Salzer! 1

Prof. Dr Wilh. Altmann , Berlin -Friedenau Lauterstr. 38II (ehemals Dir. der preuß. Staatsbibliothek) bittet mich, Sie zu veranlassen, daß Sie ihm Notizen über sich für sein die neue Auflage seines Tonkünstler-Lexikons einsenden mögen. Den selben Wunsch Prof. A’s habe ich auch an Dr Jonas zu vermitteln gehabt. Auch dieses ist geschehen.

Wie geht es Ihnen? Am Dienstag hatte ich den Besuch Otto Klemperer s 2 bei mir zu verzeichnen.


Mit besten Grüßen von uns Beiden
Ihr

Footnotes

1 The writing of postcards to Salzer and Oswald Jonas (OC 5/18, 55) is recorded jointly in Schenker's diary at OJ 4/7, p. 3944, September 13, 1934: "An Jonas u. Salzer (K.): Notizen an Altmann senden." (To Jonas and Salzer (postcards): send information to Altmann."). These relate to a postcard (OC 44/12) that Schenker received from Wilhelm Altmann the previous day, recorded on the same page of the diary.

2 Klemperer’s visit took place on Tuesday, September 11, 1934. It had been scheduled for September 10, but Klemperer had had to call it off and reschedule (OC 44/28, undated; OJ 4/7, p. 3943, September 10, 1934). Schenker sent something to Klemperer for which the postal receipt dated September 20, 1934 survives (OC 44/29, for which Klemperer's thanks are probably OC 44/27).
