Liebster H.! 1

Nur melden will ich mich! Ich war eine Woche erkrankt. Ich spüre auf Schritt u. Tritt den Sommer. Für Ende Jänner u. 1 Februar sind für hier u. Berlin Säle genommen. Hoffentlich gelingt die Absicht. Programm: Brahms C dur, Beethoven Es dur Schubert B dur. Einverstanden? Auch mit den Reihenfolge? Wie geht es? Wie stehen die Dinge? Ist Jahrbuch schon erschienen? Wo sind Anzeigen, Reklame etc.?? Vielleicht bist Du überlieb, u. schreibst ein Wort?!


Herzlichstes, Innigstes von Uns an Euch!!
Dein

Dearest Heinrich! 1

I only want to get in touch! I was ill for a week. I am dogged by the summer wherever I go. Concert halls have been booked here and in Berlin for the end of January and February 1. I hope that our goal is successfully realized. Programme: Brahms C major, Beethoven E flat major, Schubert B flat major. Are you happy with this? Also with the order of the pieces? How are you? How are things? Has Yearbook I appeared yet? Where are the notices, advertisements, etc.?? Perhaps you will be so kind to write me a line?!


Most cordial, intimate greetings from us to you!
Yours,
