Wolgeboren Herrn Professor Dr. H. Schenker
Wien

Euer Wolgeboren!

Durch unvorhergesehene Zwischenfälle und zwar Erkrankung zweier Copisten und anderweitige Überbürdung eines dritten ist eine Verlangsamung von 1–2 Tagen in der Fertigstellung der Copiatur eingetreten die übrigens von keiner Bedeutung sein dürfte, nachdem Sie mir ausdrücklich bemerkten, 2 daß die Stimmen spätestens am 8. d.M. an 3 Busoni abgehen müßen, welchen Termin auch trotz der unliebsamen Zwischenfälle pünktlich eingehalten wird.

Nr 1 2 3 4 mit sämmtlichen Doubletten werden heute Abend, spätestens {2} morgen zeitlich 5 früh fertig, Nr 4 im Laufe des morgigen Tages.


Hochachtungsvoll

Professor H. Schenker, Esq.
Vienna

Highly esteemed Sir,

Owing to unforeseen eventualities, viz. that two copyists have fallen ill and a third is behind-hand with other work, the completion of the copying has been set back by one-to-two days. This should be of no consequence, however, since you expressly told 2 me that the parts must be sent off to Busoni at the latest on the 8th inst., 3 and this deadline should be met despite the disagreeable circumstances.

Nos. 1, 2, and 3 4 with complete set of duplicate copies will be ready this evening or at the latest {2} early 5 tomorrow morning, No.4 in the course of tomorrow.


With kind regards,
[signed:] Josef Weinberger Hertzka 6
