Footnotes

1 Receipt of this lettercard is recorded in Schenker's diary at OJ 2/14, p. 2139, September 9, 1919: " von Mozio (Kbr.): kündigt an, daß er den Sommeraufenthalt deckt u. daß wir uns keiner Sorge hinzugeben brauchen wegen des übrigen Geldes. ("from Mozio (lettercard): says he has our summer stay covered and that we do not need to worry about the remaining money.").

2 It is probable that this refers to two letters, neither known to survive, the writing and/or sending of which is recorded in Schenker's diary at: (1) OJ 2/14, p. 41, August 23, 1919: " An Mozio (Br.): werde telegraphisch verständigen, wenn die Wochensendungen einzustellen sein werden; überlasse ihm die Entscheidung, wann u. wo ich das Geld bezw. den Rest des Geldes abholen könnte; frage ihn, ob er mir 500 kg Holz verschaffen könnte, wobei ich nicht versäume, so genau als möglich meine Situation zu umschreiben; schließlich teile ich die Ehetrennung Lie-Liechens mit." ("To Mozio (letter): will inform him by telegram when the weekly transfers should stop; turn over to him the decision on when and where I could pick up the money, or the rest of the money, as the case may be; I ask him whether he can secure 500 kg of wood for me, and I do not miss the chance to describe my situation as precisely as possible; and, finally, I tell him about Lie-Liechen's divorce."); (2) OJ 2/14, p. 52, September 1, 1919: "Gegen ½9h zum Postkästchen in Altenmarkt mit Briefen an Mozio u. sein Bureau, worin die Wochensendungen ab 6. d. abbestellt werden u. speziell Mozio an den Inhalt meines letzten Briefes erinnert wird." ("Around 8:30 to the mailbox in Altenmarkt with letters to Mozio and his office, in which the weekly dispatches are discontinued starting on September 6, and Mozio is specifically reminded about the content of my last letter.").

3 Heinrich and Jeanette were staying at the Schloß Tantalier in Altenmarkt, and their stay, due to be curtailed by two weeks by visa restrictions, had just been approved through to September 15 (diary, OJ 2/14, p. 50, August 30, 1919).
