Dear revered Master, 1

The address is: Zentralinstitut für Erziehung und Unterricht, Berlin W 35, Potsdamerstrasse 120. 2 I am immensely looking forward to a Friday! 3

One further question, Surely, I can give this lecture in its fully extended form, with examples from the [musical] literature? For this I should like to know, how many copies should I bring?


Many most cordial greetings.
Yours,
[signed:] Hans
